This magnificent and traditional pair of earrings represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Robert Gene, out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or gold. 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 fantastic Kokopelli designs for a stunning 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 earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked.
