Hopi bracelet with Kokopelli figures - Help for identifying hallmark

I got this bracelet as a present 30 years ago but was never able to identify the silversmith. It has twi hallmarks: the fist one looks like a raincloud, the second like a kachina figure (although the head is missing - I think it has rubbed off while wearing the bracelet over the years but I am not sure of this). Can anyone identify the silversmith and give me an idea how old the bracelet might be and what it is worth today? Thanks

One resource online states that one mark can be attributed to “Kopavi,” a Hopi jeweler.

I also found this mark:

This website attributes the rain cloud mark to Kopavi and Bueford Dawaboya, so perhaps your bracelet is a collaboration? Maybe someone else can clarify further. I also noticed that Kovapi Art and Jewelry Gallery is still making jewery out of Sedona, Arizona. Here is a screen shot from their website explaining the Kopavi mark:

As far as a value is concerned, I would sell this cuff for $75 in my store. Hope this helps you jumpstart your research! Thanks for sharing!
