Size: .25" Diameter

Hopi overlay is a technique that have brought recognition to Hopi jewelers.  The jewelry is made by working with two sheets of sterling silver.  The shape of the item is sawn out of both sheets with a jeweler’s saw.  The bottom sheet of silver is engraved with hatch marks and oxidized to turn it black.  The design on the top piece is carefully sawn out by hand and soldered onto the bottom.
