There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Scott Skeets, 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 pair of earrings, the second layer forms a hand, water wave, lizard, and other Native American designs while set on top of a gorgeous hoop design for a dazzling finish. In Native American beliefs, the hand represents the presence of man. It signifies his work, his achievements, and his legacy. It also depicts direction of the creative spirit through a man. It is known as a vessel for the Creator's power. The water waves design represents continuous life. The earrings are stamped stelring and hallmarked by the artist.
