    Watson Honanie – Hopi

    Watson Honanie Watson Honanie creates jewelry of gold and silver overlay portraying Hopi culture and ceremonial life. Encouraged by two uncles, Porter Timecheand and the late Fred Kabotie, both of whom were associated with the Hopi Silvercraft Guild, he began making jewelry at an early age. “They gave me scraps of silver so I could make small pieces, mostly earrings,” Honanie says. He learned the overlay technique from his brother Phillip, and worked at the Silvercraft Guild for about two years before venturing out on his own.
