DESCRIPTION:

An offer like this will not last long! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Thomas (Tommy) and Rosita Singer, out of genuine sterling silver and 12 Karat Gold Filled. 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 these earrings, the second layer forms magnificent 12 KGF Bear designs and border patterns for an excellent finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". The earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.

12KGF is as good as gold. The color will never fade, change, or wear off. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through. 12KGF behaves the same way as gold. 

World famous artist Tommy (Thomas) Singer is one of the best Native American Indian silversmiths around. His name and his work are easily recognized and associated with Navajo Jewelry. Tommy Singer has been mentioned in many books, magazines, and news articles throughout his life. He was born in 1938 in Winslow, Arizona. Tommy belongs to the Tall House Clan of the Navajo Tribe. Tommy was taught by his father and started working with jewelry in the early 1960's.
