Details

This Native American handmade Sterling Silver bracelet was created by Hopi master craftsman, Manual Hoyungowa. Hoyungwa pictured the traditional Hopi Pueblo complete with Kiva on this original and heavy Overlay bracelet. Clouds heavy with rain complete this idyllic scene of Mesa life. Manuel Hoyungwa (Hopi, Greasewood Clan, 1953 - 2011.) Hoyungowa lived in Hotevilla on Third Mesa and was an active silversmith at Hopi Pueblo since the 197'0s. Although he produced some jewelry with coral and turquoise, more in the style of Navajo work, Hoyungowa was a master silversmith which is evident in his traditional Hopi silver overlay technique jewelry. Hoyungowa learned silver overlay technique from Preston Monongye (his uncle and another famous Hopi artisan) and the Institute Of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
