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 bottom layer is then oxidized to enhance the design.
