The beautiful features in this pendant will make you appreciate Native American art! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms a magnificent Twins design. The Twins, depicted in almost every emergence/creation story among the Southwestern Indian people. The twins are usually depicted as boys or small men who heroically overcome great odds to protect the people from monsters, drought, attack from other beings, animals, and many other problems. They illustrate the concept of duality: in life, in the natural world, everything exists in balance -- male/female, large/small, light/dark, and good/evil. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
