Paula says - "Whoa ! Was this bracelet made for us horsekeepers or what ! The fence and the neat mane tells all. Detailed traditional stamping around the storyteller mural and exceptional overlay work on the sides - it is dramatic and very Native American!"

Overlay

Overlay pieces are made of two layers. The bottom layer is a solid sterling silver piece. The top layer has a cutout design. The cutout is placed over the bottom layer and the two pieces are "sweated" together, that is heated so that they become one. The bottom layer (background to the cutout) is usually accented. The Navajo silversmiths oxidize the bottom layer which darkens it. Hopi silversmiths typically oxidize and etch the background (texturize it) with hashmarks.
