Other Native American Items   Hopi jewelry, Hopi silver jewelry Hopi Indian jewelry, Hopi crafts

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.
