The story of original and authentic Hopi jewelry is as beautiful as the pieces themselves.
(PRWEB) June 21, 2013
There are various types and styles of Native American jewelry on the market today, but few can compete with the beauty, allure and tradition of Hopi Indian jewelry. For hundreds of years, the Hopi tribe in the American Southwest has been crafting some of the most beautiful pieces of art and jewelry in the world.
Now, a brand new site dedicated to all things Hopi Indian jewelry has been launched.
“The story of original and authentic Hopi jewelry is as beautiful as the pieces themselves,” said HopiIndianJewelry.com spokesman Ron Jimson. “While many people admire the beauty of the jewelry, they don’t know the history behind it or what the symbols actually mean.”
The new site takes an in-depth look at the rich history associated with Hopi jewelry. It also puts the spotlight on its role in popular fashion today.
“Some of the biggest stars of stage and screen have been seen wearing Hopi Indian jewelry on red carpets all over the world,” said Jimson. “Just by taking one look at some of these pieces, it’s easy to see why.”
The Hopi are particularly known for crafting earrings, bracelets, necklaces and other jewelry out of silver. The designs of the Hopi Indian jewelry are meticulously cut using hand tools. The distinctive designs of the silver jewelry began to take shape in the late 1800s, and Hopi jewelry hallmarks placed on each piece reveals the creator of the stunning work of art.
The intricacy of the symbols in such limited spaces is amazing and celebrates the incredible and unique talent of the Hopi people.
“The Hopi are a proud and prideful people,” said Jimson. “Our new site celebrates their accomplishments both past and present.”
