Details

Jewelry by Morris is EXTREMELY valuable and collectible! He is one of the most important and significant Hopi artist in history!! Morris Robinson was one of the earliest Hopi smiths and began making jewelry in 1924. He considered an innovator and pioneer incorporating art deco styling into his jewelry very early on. Quoting from American Indian Jewelry I by Gregory Schaff, "By 1929, Morris was recognized as an accomplished jeweler. He became perhaps the first Indian master goldsmith in the Southwest. He preceded Charles Loloma, Kenneth Begay and others."
