THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY

Sterling silver and 12 Karat Gold Filled.

MEASUREMENTS

Post earrings measure approximately 3/4" long and 3/4" at widest point.

DESCRIPTION:

Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing pair of earrings! 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 Kokopelli designs, along with sterling siver water wave designs 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. The water waves design represents continuous life. 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.

    I recently purchased a lovely sterling silver bracelet with three bright blue. turquoise stones. This is something I knew my wife would love to have and it made a wonderful birthday gift. I had looked in a variety of places for this type of bracelet and only found it on the Turquoise Jewelry site. I felt we received very good value for the high quality bracelet we received. It came promptly and was packaged appropriately. I would not hesitate to but again from Turquoise Jewelry and highly recommend them to other buyers.
