Hopi Eagle Kachina Silver Bracelet by Watson Honanie

This exquisite Hopi bracelet by renowned artist Watson Honanie features a magnificent dancing Eagle kachina, the rising Sun Face and a Hopi village.

The Hopi tribe lives isolated on three remote mesas in northern Arizona surrounded by the Painted Desert where the land is arid and dry at high altitude. Groundwater is so scarce that people have to drive miles to a well just to fill up large water bottles so they can survive. In such an environment, water truly is life and the blessings of rain make it possible for plants and sustenance to grow and blossom in the harsh desert. The Eagle kachina is dancing in prayer to bring rain.

Uniquely designed and crafted by master silver and goldsmith Watson Honanie, this one of a kind bracelet is made of .925 sterling silver overlaid on oxidized silver and handcrafted and polished in the "modern" style. The oxidized silver has hand hammered etching. The item you are purchasing is exactly the bracelet depicted here. The black mark you see at top center above the Eagle kachina is an artifact of the photographic process, and not a blemish on the bracelet.

Approximate measurements: Width 2.5 inch/63.74mm. Height 1.7 inch/43mm. Thickness 0.123 inch/3.12mm. Gap between ends 1.10 inch/28mm. The inner circumference is a total of 6.81 inches/173mm including the gap. If the gap does not quite fit your wrist, it can be adjusted somewhat by an experienced jeweler.

About the artist:
Watson Honanie creates jewelry portraying Hopi culture and ceremonial life. He was the first Native American artist to combine gold and silver overlay in the same jewelry design. For over thirty years, he has employed heavy gauge silver and gold, making his award-winning and complex jewelry instantly recognizable for its substantial feel as well as his unique designs. Many of his subjects are similar, but no two pieces of jewelry are ever the same.

Watson was born on the south rim of the Grand Canyon and began making jewelry as a teenager with encouragement from two uncles associated with the Hopi Silvercraft Guild, Fred Kabotie and Porter Timeche. Eventually his innovative spirit lead him to experiment and perfect working with gold overlay on silver. He lives with his family part of the year in the village of Shungopavi on Second Mesa or in the village of Hotevilla on Third Mesa and cultivates more than twenty acres of corn.
