Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Hopi artist, Loren Qumawunu created this beautiful pendant through the overlay technique. Hopi overlay is constructed from two layers of sterling silver.  A design is cut out with a jeweler’s saw by hand.  This top design layer is then silver soldered to another sheet, the bottom layer, of silver.  Texturing is added to the bottom layer in all the open areas of the design using a hammer and a small punch.  The piece is then formed to its final shape and size.  The bottom layer is then oxidized to enhance the design. A unique addition of high-quality craftsmanship to your jewelry wardrobe.  Weighs 4 grams.  Signed

5/8″ wide x 1  3/4” long
