Details

This stunning Native American handmade Sterling silver overlay bracelet was created by Hopi artist Arthur Lomayestewa. This more thick than usual for an overlay bracelet is decorated with traditional Hopi symbols representative of storms, winds, and rain clouds. Such imagery is of particular importance to the Hopi whose traditional homw is on three mesas in arid Northwestern Arizona, U.S.A. The word Hopi means "balance". Lomayestewa achieves this balance with this bracelet by using two images that mirror the other in perfect balance. STUNNING! Make this outstanding bracelet a great part of your fine collection of Native American jewelry.
