Kokopelli Pin/ Pendant on Hand-Made Chain

Wayne and Emory Sekaquaptewa

About The Kokopelli Pin/ Pendant on Hand-Made Chain

Sterling silver sheet was used to create and fabricate the overlay. 

The top sheet was carefully saw cut to make the design and the background sheet was meticulously stamped with a micro line pattern that adds life to the "negative" space.  Half round wire was used to make a bail hook for the pendant back and a suite of commercial silver pin findings were also soldered to the back for added wear options.

The chain is a mill rolled (flattened) round wire, hand shaped and soldered to form a chain of links--each measuring 3/8" length X 5/32" X 1/16" deep.

The micro line stamping fills and follows every curve with astounding precision.

About the Artist

Wayne (1923-1979) and Emory (1928-2007) were brothers who established Hopi Enterprise, which later became Hopicrafts Guild. Together they trained a number of jewelers who worked under one roof, developing new methods of jewelry production.

Initially the Hopicrafts symbol represented the hallmark for either brother.  Once their trainees were sufficiently skilled, Wayne and Emory added their last name stamped to differentiate their efforts from other members of their team of jewelers.

Emory was a Hopi leader and a school, known for his role in compiling the first dictionary of the Hopi language.  He was also believed to be the first Native American to graduate from West Point.  Later he attended law school at the University of Arizona.
