Monongya is unquestionable the master of masters. The book, like all Dubin books, is well done and beautifully illustrated. Jesse Monongya is a powerhouse in contemporary American Indian culture, greatly admired by many who should like this winsome book. Selling expensive art takes skills beyond those used at the jeweler's workbench. Prominence in the politically charged museum and gallery world takes other talents that few perfect. Being a member of a minority culture adds further odds. Monongya has mastered the field. Little of this comes through in Dubin's portrait of her friend.

Opal Bears and Lapis Skies is a well written and thoroughly researched book by best-selling and internationally acclaimed author Lois Sherr Dubin who also penned "The History of Beads, from 30,000 B.C. to the Present" and the monumental work "North American Jewelry and Adornment from Prehistory to the Present".
This, her latest undertaking, is not merely an artist biography but an inspiring story of a man who, seemingly against all odds, persevered to become one of the finest jewelers and master inlayers, Native American or otherwise, alive today. Abandoned by his parents at the age of three, Jesse Monongya, along with an older brother and a younger sister, were adopted and raised by an elderly traditional Navajo couple living near Two Grey Hills on the Navajo reservation. Jesse still credits his "Grandmother Yellow's" teachings for instilling in him the values that enabled him to overcome all of the obstacles he faced in life to eventually reach the pinnacle of his chosen profession.
The book is an eloquently written biography interspersed with informative lessons on Navajo traditions, beliefs, mythology and religion that inspire Jesse's superbly crafted creations, along with his own thoughts and anecdotal recollections from his childhood. These side notes make the book a valuable tool in understanding the Navajo culture and indeed the world from which Jesse Monongya comes. In addition to the story of Jesse, the book features a chapter dealing with the techniques and processes involved in the making of the jewelry. The work is illustrated throughout by the superb photographs of Kiyoshi Togashi, making it a feast for the eyes as well as the brain.
In summary, this book is a must for everyone interested in Native American jewelry and is also highly recommended for those who love beautiful jewelry in general, as well as those who just want to learn more about the Navajo people, their history and "Beauty Way".

Like all of Lois Sherr Dubin's books - this is an exceptional book. The jewelry, print quality, photography and paper are all outstanding (unlike the mediocre Schiffer publishing books I've bought and returned - that all look faded and drab). The jewelry is spectacular - don't hesitate to buy this!

I love him!

This is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL book and the text insights into Jesse's life are the best we have read. We are really enjoying this magnificent collection of - well, art in metal. I recommend it to anyone who values this type of expression.

I am a bit of a novice who has recently become interested in contemporary Native American jewelry and received this book as a gift. What I can say is that Opal Bears and Lapis Skies was an incredible treat to receive and I have found myself frequently going back to it to learn more about this artist. His volume of work is quite impressive and beautifully displayed in this book.
What I think works most effectively with this book is that for someone like myself, who is still familiarizing myself with this craft, I found it instantly appealing and understandible. One particularly notable quality of this book is how it works on several different levels of familiarity with this type of jewelry. Friends of mine with little knowledge of this craft have picked it up merely to page through it and have been able to quickly develop an appeciation for the struggles Jesse has gone through (many that we're all familiar with) and how he has been able to transform these motivations into an amazing talent. I found the information on his background particularly interesting and valuable, helping me place his pieces in a greater context.
I can imagine that this book is even more valuable to anyone who appreciates this type of jewelry and the talent and skill behind the pieces featured. I find myself learning something new each time I look through this book--the pieces shown are beautiful and many are truly amazing. The photographs are amazingly rich and sharp and are themselves a visual treat, with the quality as good as well as anything I've seen in print.
