Indian Jewelry Making by Oscar T. Branson
Ever since the late 19th century, these necklaces have dominated the Navajo jewelry style. They are made up of beaded silver, squash blossom petal beads and the finishing touch is, of course, a naja pendant in the shape of an inverted crescent. They are unique — not only among Native American jewelry but in the whole necklace sphere! While the Zuni tribe first perfected Inlay style jewelry, many Navajo Indians have become some of the most prolific inlayers around.
The craft of inlay starts with a piece of jewelry, usually in Sterling Silver, with channels or voids that allow the piece to be inlaid with endless combinations of colors and cuts of gemstones. Pink Camel Boutique is honored to be a home for some of the most beautiful pieces of Inlay jewelry from Navajo artisans. The Hopi are the oldest Arizona residents, however, Hopi silversmithing is more of a recent craft. Much of the early Hopi jewelry was made from natural materials such as Turquoise, shells, wood, and seeds.
Over time Lanyard taught his craft to a Hopi named Sikyatala. Overlay is a combination of two layers of sterling silver, similar in shape, with traditional designs carved in them. While the Hopi jewelry is mostly silver, turquoise also holds a special place. Within the Hopi tribe, turquoise is said to ward off evil — bags of turquoise hung throughout the entire house deter this negative energy. As a protective stone, it was used by Hopi warriors when going into battle. They are all cut, carved and crafted with the greatest of care. Open Preview See a Problem?
