  • Curator's comments

    James Eustace (Zuni/Cochiti) is the third generation of the Eustace family to make jewellery - like his cousins Julius Eustace and Robert E Jones. James Eustace lives in Cochiti pueblo and makes jewellery of his grandfather's design, though he does not carve or file stone, preferring to use pre-cut stones.
