The Hopi tribe has resided in Arizona for over one thousand years, and has played a significant role in the world of Native American jewelry and art. As with many Southwestern tribes, ornamentation began with carvings and crafting with stones, wood, shells, and even bone. It was not until much later that gems were incorporated for decoration.

The purpose of these earliest adornments was for spiritual functions. The jewelry and art featured symbols and pictures of spiritually-connected images and were used to connect the wearer to a spiritual path or belief.

In the thousands years of jewelry creation, the Hopi have stayed true to their roots of symbolism and carving based adornments. Much of the Hopi jewelry is made of silver and features imagery such as Kokopelli, Bear Paw, Coyote, and Kachinas. The authenticity of the beautiful jewelry still holds many spiritual meanings, and is often worn not just for their precise and stunning shape.

Today, the Hopi artisans continue to create gorgeous adornments that reflect the same pieces made thousands of years ago. Shop our Hopi jewelry and accessories to view a truly historical and cultural collection of Native American jewelry.
