The Hopi tribe is known for excellence in silver. The Hopi had developed a type and style indigenous to themselves and their innate design palette, originally formed in pottery and basketry, and later applied to Hopi jewelry. Emmett has captured the Hopi design in this bola. His hefty design in silver of the Thunderbird that represents power, protection, and strength. The Thunderbird is often seen as the most powerful of all spirits and can transform into human form by opening his head up like a mask and taking his feathers off as if they were a mere blanket. The bola hosts the most beautiful Sinai pirate turquoise.
