This magnificent coin silver bracelet (three views of the same piece) was created by Hopi Silversmith, Merle Namoki.  It is entitled: Balancing the World.  Merle explains the design in his own words:
"The design is of balancing the world.  We have the Force's of Nature & Disasters which we call (Kooyaniskatsii )in Hopi..out of balance. Turquoise, represents the Heart of the people.  If we put our Hearts together as one we could control & balance the Force's of Nature and live long healthy lives. We look to the Sun, Clouds, Moon & Stars to guide us on the right path." 
This piece is totally made out of coin silver even the bezel surrounding the #8 turquoise at the center.  Merle also made the stamps used to make the designs.   It measures 7/8 of an inch wide (1 1/8 inches across the turquoise) and a total of 7 inches around the inside which includes the opening.  It weighs 4.2 oz. or 120 grams.

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 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.
