MATERIALS: Sterling silver. MEASUREMENTS: Pendant measures approximately 1-3/8" long (including bail) and 5/8" at widest point. DESCRIPTION: This lovely pendant will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Calvin Peterson 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 is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms an excellent Buffalo and Water Wave design for an outstanding look. The Buffalo is one of the most important animals to the people of the Plains and it is a great symbol to most Native Americans. The Plains Indians had developed life around the buffalo using it in many different ways. It was used for food, tools, shelter, warmth, and weaponry. To some, the Buffalo represents strength, stability, and prosperity. The water waves design represents continuous life. The ring is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
