This gorgeous, highly polished Hopi bracelet with turquoise comes to us from Silversmith, Marcus Coochwikvia.  Designed for a very small wrist, this piece measures 1 1/2 inches wide and a total of 6 1/8 inches around the inside, which includes a generous 1 1/4 inch opening.  The two views of the bracelet show an eagle design with lightning, clouds and rain on one side and a bear with many weather symbols on its body along with a prayer shrine on the other side.  Marcus' initials, his hallmark appear on the inside.

This bracelet is an example of "early" Hopi silverwork using coin ingots rather than the two pieces of silver of typical overlay.  Rather than looking at "the new", Silversmith, Gerald Lomaventema is exploring the history of this art form.  This particular piece has a stamped cloud design, measures 1 5/8 inches wide with a total of 6 5/8 inches around the inside, which includes a 1 1/8 inches opening.  Because coin ingots were used in its creation, it is worth mentioning the weight: 2.8 ounces.  We ask you to click on Gerald's highlighted name above to learn more about him, as well as the creation of this unique and wonderful piece.

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!

Once in a while, we find incredibly beautiful pieces created by Native American crafts people from other areas of the Southwest.   Although our specialty is Hopi jewelry, we are pleased to share these works of art with you for your consideration.

We were recently introduced by Hopi Silversmith, Merle Namoki to a Silversmith who is part Hopi, part Apache and part Yavapi, Jerry Whagado. 
Jerry learned silversmithing in the late 1960s, and early 1970s at the Hopi Guild from some of the great Silversmiths of the time, including Fred Kabotie. 
During our brief visit with him, Jerry emphasized how much he has worked to develop his own unique style which would reflect his diverse background.  As a result, his pieces will often include, Hopi overlay technique with Apache inspired designs. 
Also unique to many of Jerry's pieces is the surface texture, as seen on these bracelets, where he fuses powdered silver to the top of the band.  Although he often adds a patina to his figures, as seen on most Hopi overlay pieces, Jerry has chosen to leave the Apache interpretations of figures on these bracelets "unblackened."

 Although our specialty is Hopi jewelry, we are pleased to share his works of art and his story with you for your consideration.
