When it comes to designing Hopi Hair clips there really are no rules. The clips are normally stamped, inlayed, set with stone, or overlayed with a design. The stones used are common in Most other Hopi Jewelry including turquoise, gaspeite, variscite, coral, multi colored oyster shell and others as well.
Most Hopi hair clips are handmade from sterling silver and are made by authentic Hopi silversmiths using .925 sterling selver. The portion of the hair clip that actually hold the hair is normaly made of a base metal for durability and the handcrafted sterling silver barrete is attached to that.
