An elegant, slim Bracelet by renowned Hopi Jeweler Nathan Fred. Hopi Jewelry, historically, was learned from the Spanish and primarily cast or stamped. This developed into the signature Hopi Overlay style, which constructs detailed designs from two layers of Sterling Silver. This Bracelet has a simple, balanced Waterwave Overlay design.
For the Hopi Pueblo, running water is a symbol of the continuity of life and the extended Waterwave throughout the circumference of the Bracelet is in-keeping with this idea of the ongoing flow of time. An Overlay Border around the edge of the Bracelet further adds to this sense of continuum and flow.
Wearing this Bracelet provides a tranquil and peaceful quality and provides a subtle reminder of the passage of time and changes in one's life. A sense of serenity and resolution are called forth to those that reflect on the Bracelet design and its meaning.
