Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing bolo tie! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi hand crafted, by artist Bennett, out of authentic sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this bolo, the second layer forms a traditional Kokopelli design, along with imprinted patterns and a Sun Face that can be seen accenting for a phenomenal look. The bolo piece is stamped sterling and is hallmarked by the artist.
The Kokopelli is a common fertility symbol throughout the Southwest. In Native American beliefs, the Kokopelli visits various communities, seducing and impregnating the young women drawn to the tones of his flute playing.
