At Kachina House, we have a wide array of Native American jewelry handcrafted by various artists from across many tribes. Each piece of jewelry is unique to the artist and the tribe which they are a part.
Often sought are Native American bracelets. These cuffs and link bracelets feature impressive gemstones and detailed engraving or stamping that symbolizes aspects of Native American culture.
The different bracelet designs are breathtaking in themselves, but what truly makes them wearable art is the beautiful spectrum of colors that spans our collection. We have bright corals and turquoise that are bold and stand out, along with multicolored cuffs that can be worn with just about anything.
Native American Bracelets
Many Native American tribes created their own jewelry featuring styles, colors, and materials that were unique to them. Influential individuals who inspired the various styles and designs of Native American bracelet cuffs were among the Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni.
The Navajo are said to have been the first tribe to work with silver, learning the art from a Spanish blacksmith in the early years of contact. They have been known to showcase large, natural stones—especially turquoise—and carefully molded silver within their bracelet cuff designs. Their stamped designs also are renowned.
The Zuni are credited for introducing the vibrant color spectrum to Native American bracelet design. Their style consists mostly of multistone designs across sterling silver bases. Typically, gemstones in Zuni jewelry are separated by Sterling silver dividers.
The Hopi entered the jewelry-making market later, but managed to make a statement with their designs since they now produce some of the most popular Native American jewelry in the country. Hopi bracelet designs mainly consist of shapes and symbols created in overlay on the bracelet.
