Hopi Jewelry

The Indians of the Hopi Reservation are known across the globe for their excellent Silver Overlay skills. We are proud to feature the work of many well known Hopi artists as well as a few of those just starting out in their trade. The Hopi silver overlay technique begins with 2 flat silver pieces. The first piece is left as is, while the artist cuts out the intricate design on the second piece. The two pieces are then fused together to create an incredible two dimensional design. Hopi Silver Overlay jewelry is among the most coveted hand crafted Jewelry in the world today.
