This lovely pair of earrings will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Stanley Gene, out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or 12KGF. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pair of earrings, the second layer forms lovely Kokopelli and Water wave designs, along with stamped patterns for a magnificent 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. The water waves design represents continuous life. The earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked.
