[Navajo] Silver Overlay Horse Pierce
Handmade accessories made by American Indians living in southwestern United States are called Indian Jewelry.
Typical tribes include Hopi, Zuni, Navaho, Santo Domingo, and Isleta.
Many people have a strong turquoise image, but not only that, but also the engraving technology is wonderful and creates an attractive silver jewelry.
The Navajo tribe has a quasi -autonomous right in the desert area of Four Corners, which straddles New Mexico, Arizona, and has the largest residence in the United States (Navajo Nation), and is almost the same as Hokkaido.
This product uses a technique for overlay, and in 1930, a technique invented by the Hopi Paul and Ski. By engraving a pattern called a chopped eye on the sheet, and oxidizing the pattern, the pattern floats black. This is a technique that is used not only by the Hopi but also by the Navajo.
