Native American Jewelry: NA081

 

HOPI HARMONY ( Vintage Hopi Native American Indian Bracelet ): Hopi overlay jewelry is characterized by self-containment and internal harmony.  This sleek and sophisticated Vintage Hopi Tewa bracelet (c. 1975) is a perfect example of that harmony. Symbols relate to each other and borders circumscribe the whole, suggesting the order and serenity of the Hopi, whose name for themselves, Hopi-Shinumu, means “people of peace”. The overlay technique was developed by the Hopi in the early 1940’s. The bottom layer of silver that shows through the top cut-out is oxidized to make the design more prominent. Look closely for the tiny Hopi texture marks under the overlay polished design. Superbly crafted and hallmarked by an unknown artist, this bracelet is also marked “Sterling” and bears the trademark Hopi Tewa face denoting the Hopi Arts and Crafts Guild. Regal and elegant, black and silver is always in the best of taste.
 
Condition: Excellent.
Size: 1 1/4” wide, inner circumference, including the opening, is 7”. It fits a medium wrist.
