This lovely bracelet is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Alonzo Mariano, 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 necklace, the second layer forms a beautiful Turtle, Thunder/Waterwave, Sun, Lizard, and Kokopelli designs. Imprinted border patterns can be seen accenting the bracelet for an exquisite finish. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
Sterling Silver is a metal, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. Although any metal can make up the 7.5% of non-silver component, years of study have shown that copper is most compatible, while aiding the solidity and durability of the metal without harming its beautiful color. The small amount of 7.5% copper added to all silver has almost no effect on the metals overall value. Due to the durability of sterling silver it is not only used for jewelry, but household accessories as well. Silver is known to last a lifetime with the proper care.
