Hand made Native American Indian Jewelry; Hopi Sterling Silver  and Bear Paw Bearpaw Money Clip

The Bear Paw overlay designs on this money clip is sterling silver, but for strength, the actual money clip is stainless steel.

What is 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 oxidize and etch the background (texturize it) with hashmarks.

Paula says -

"Hopi artist Steven Sockyma began producing silverwork in 1969 and he specializes in overlay. These heavy money clips made on very thick, domed sterling silver are fine examples of his work."
