Availability: In stock
MATERIALS: Sterling silver. MEASUREMENTS: Ring is size 5-1/4, it measures approximately 3/8" long and 3/4" at widest point. DESCRIPTION: Expect plenty of compliments while wearing this stunning ring! 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 to form the foundation, while the second layer forms a marvelous Kokopelli and Prayer Sticks design for an excellent finish. 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. Pahos or Prayer Sticks are carefully notched and painted cottonwood or cedar sticks with specific feathers attached to catch the wind. They are planted in the ground at religious sites, and at springs to carry specific prayers to the Creator or to the Kachinas. The ring is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
