Hopi bracelet by Phillip Honanie

$ 395
  • Description
    Silver overlay technique with geometric squares and lightening designs

    5 5/16” long; 1” wide

    excellent condition




    Hopi overlay jewelry was developed after World War II. The Hopi silversmith cuts an intricate design out of one piece of silver and then solders it onto another piece of silver, oxidizing the cutout designs. If you look closely, you can see the darkened areas have a texture that the artist has worked into those areas.

    Phillip Honanie was a very talented silversmith. He was very active from the late 1960s into the early 21st century. He unfortunately suffered from diabetes and died in 2017. His work is high regarded and very collectible.

    Honanie’s hallmark is a pair of crescents, the Hopi sign for friendship.

    This bracelet was purchased in 1987 and has been packed away since then. It has no wear and is in new condition.
