  *** SOLD ***

This beautiful new Hopi silver overlay bolo features the sunface as part of the design. Please ignore the reflections that can be seen in the silver. It was very difficult to get a good picture of the front of the bolo straight on because of the reflections of the camera.

The main bolo measures 2-1/4 tall by 1-3/8 wide and it has a locking bolo slide on the back. The bolo is slightly convex. The fancy silver tips are 2-1/4 long.


Brand new and in perfect condition! Certificate of Authenticity and gift box included. Hallmarked by the artist, Joe Josytewa. Joe has been making jewelry since 1988. He learned from his brothers Jesse and Louie. He is a member of the Snow Clan.


Silver Overlay is a process of soldering one piece of silver, from which a design has been cut, over another piece of silver. The top layer is a handmade, hand cut overlay created from a sheet of sterling that is then bonded to the base layer of sterling. The base layer background is usually oxidized, which turns the silver surface black, and is often scratched or stamped. The oxidation brings out a contrast between the two pieces and makes the individual designs more visible.
