DESCRIPTION:

Enjoy the amazing craftsmanship exhibited in this belt buckle! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips, out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this belt buckle, the second layer forms an incredible Red Bearded Kachina design that gives the piece a lovely finish. The Red Bearded Kachina is one of the most favored Kachinas among the Hopis. They are appreciated because of the melodious songs and the beautiful dances that they do in the spring. The main purpose of the Angak’china is to bring rain to the people and their crops. Their long hair, which is worn loosely down the back, resembles the falling rain with the eagle breast plumes rising like clouds above it. These kachinas appear in the Niman Ceremony on First Mesa. The Tawa Angak’China has the same functions as the Angak’Cina, the only difference is the color of the beard. The belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked.

    I bought earrings and a cuff bracelet as a gift for my friend's birthday. She LOVED them both. They look beautiful on her! I will definitely buy more in the future.

    Bought my second ring made by the artist Ray Jack.The first had mine 8 Turquose and I received many compliments on it. Of my over twenty Native American rings it is at the top. I Leary’s wanted an Inlay Navajo ring to add to my collection and having Ray Jack as the artist just made it better.
