I know there is a Navajo silvesmith named Emerson. I have a bracelet signed Emerson that has what appear to be stylized kachina figures. It is heavy with the kind of deeply incised engraving that is characteristic of Hopi pieces.
I wonder if this means it is Hopi. Is there a Hopi silversmith nemaed Emerson? Or could it just be a Navajo silversmith using a Hopi symbol? Or could it be stylized Yei figures?
I am not going to sell it, I was just wondering.
