Hopi Overlay Waterwave and Corn Design Cuff Bracelet by Ben Mansfield

Product Description

Traditionally, the Hopi Peoples were reliant on rivers for their sustenance, as fish constituted their main source of food. The meaning of the Waterwave symbol was to signify the flow of life from the Earth and thanks to this life- giving provision.

Similarly, Corn is the Native American symbol of sustenance, the staff of life and is an important symbol of many tribes. Corn is considered a gift from the Great Spirit so its role is both as a food and a ceremonial object.

This Sterling Silver Bracelet by Ben Mansfield features both the Corn and Waterwave Symbols in homage to the joy present in livelihood and abundance.

The Owner of this Bracelet is one who revels in the life- giving fruits of our Earth and Earthly pleasures that these provide. This wearer is someone who is full of life and gratitude for the simple gifts we are bestowed every day that we choose to realise them.
