Hopi Bracelets

96190034 Hopi Bracelet

A stunning cuff created by Hopi Silversmith, Merle Namoki!  Based on a similar, award winning piece that we offered last year, Merle made some design changes, and entered this piece into the 2019 Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market where he received an Honorable Mention from the Exhibitors Juried Competition.  (The ribbon is included with the purchased piece).

This cuff measures 2 3/8 inches wide and a total of 7 inches around the inside, which includes the 1 1/4 inch opening.  The materials used are sterling silver and 18 karat gold. (18 gauge over 18 gauge).  Contemporary looking but still traditional Hopi overlay.  Merle's hallmark, the Sun's Forehead is stamped on the inside.

The story behind the design is as follows in Merle's own words:  "Renewal of Life.  Every minute, hour, day, month, year etc... A life is renewed. Same as the design on the bracelet, it could be corn, beans, melon, etc... Seeds of all life.  When you plant the seeds, the Germination Deity does the magic to germinate the seeds to grow. And of course you need the Elements, Sun, & Moisture in order for something to grow.  The corn represents people, the Germination Deity helps to produce food for us to survive.   Moisture, Lightning, Rain, & Water we need in our system to survive also.  Father Sun helps guide us through, day by day for long healthy lives.  Grandfather Moon, & Stars guide us at night when we are sleeping, & resting.  The prayer feathers are for praying, what you want in life for every living thing in this world. The canes represents the plants, from seeds, grown, full grown, to maturity.   Same as for us peoples, newborn, child, teenager, adult, & old age is what we want to live.  The lines stamped, bottom for the land that we live on. Middle is like a cycle we do every year, or a Guidance that was given to us by the Creator (Masau). Top is the Heavens, where all the Elements are that are helping us grow."

96130217 Hopi Bracelet

"The Kokopelli is the representative of fertility.  They pray and play their flutes to Tawa-ee-Ta-na (Sun, our Father) to bless us with rain for our corn.  Corn is the main food by which Hopi survive.  When we came up from the 'si-pa-pu' (entrance into the fourth world) the people were given corn, a planting stick and a jar of water by Ma-sau the deity who this world belongs.  He said if we are able and willing to toil and to live a simple life by using the tools he gave us, we were welcome to stay..the easy life in the third world led to corruption and then the destruction of that world." (As told to us by Dorothy Poleyma-Kyasyousie)
This highly polished bracelet measures 1/2 of an inch wide and is a total of 6 5/8 inches around the inside, which includes the 1 inch opening.  Beautifully crafted by Ray Kyasyousie!

Notes About Bracelet Sizing:
In the description, we use the phrase "measures...a total of XX inches around the inside, which includes the XX inch opening".  This "total" would equal the measurement of a tape measure placed around the wrist comfortably,  or placed around the inside (including the opening) of an existing bracelet that fits well.
