Navajo Jewelry


South of Navajo Bridge there is a section of Highway 89 that goes along a red ridge of cliffs on one side and on the other, the chasm of the Colorado River. There is very little that grows there, and it is part of the Navajo Reservation. Along the highway are some rickety shelters in which people sell jewelry and pottery.

We stopped at one of them and I asked if the woman could accept credit but she could not, so I bought the most beautiful beaded necklace and earrings I could afford with the cash I had. Her mother made the jewelry.
