Hopi jewelry is renowned for its particularly striking silverwork. Normally, when someone thinks Native American jewelry, thy think turquoise or coral stones, but Hopi jewelry is prominently made with plain sterling silver. Hopi artists will use the inlay or overlay technique and carve beautiful, crisp images into their silver, often imprinting images of Hopi symbolism and belief.
The Hopi Reservation is located in Northeastern Arizona. Because of our close proximity, we’ve been able to make lasting relationships with the artists, bringing you the latest and greatest pieces from the Hopi tribe. Some trademarks of Hopi jewelry are the use of overlay (Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individually detailed image). The images are often related to Hopi history, patterns, and religious beliefs, such as the famous Kachina figures, which you will see in our collection.
Our George Phillips Hopi rings are designed with intricate overlay to give you beautiful images of Hopi belief and history. You’ll see a lot of the whimsical deity, Kokopelli, in this collection. He is believed to be a god of fertility within the Native American community and can be easily distinguished by his hunchback and signature flute.
Hopi earrings of silver and gold are a simply stunning way to rock the Native style this year. You will often see unique designs along with overlay, like cut-through patterns that showcase the skill of our artists.
