Hopi Overlay Bear Paw Cuff Bracelet by Floyd Lomakuyvaya

Product Description

Floyd Lomakuyvaya is the artist behind the Barbara Chester Award Sculpture, which is bestowed annually by the Hopi Foundation to outstanding clinicians/practitioners who treat victims of torture as well as their families and communities. He is a distinguished jeweler who's pieces are highly sought after.

Lomakuyvaya holds the symbolism of different motifs in high regard. As he sculpts and carves, he feels the meaning of the symbol and form within himself. His pieces have a true, deep meaning, with consideration given to each detail.

This Polished Sterling Silver Bracelet features Bear Paws, Prayer Feathers and Waterwaves with Pueblos. It is a plentiful design with a number of unique elements to distinguish it from the norm. Unlike most Hopi Overlay Jewelry, this piece has a raised, three-dimensional finish. The central overlay is contained within an oval shape, beside which are two rectangles.

The added weight and form to this Bracelet creates a wearable statement. The wearer desires both an aesthetic finish and intrinsic sentimental value.
