STERLING SILVER OVERLAY TECHNIQUE. This technique uses multiple layers of sterling silver soldered together to create a three dimensional effect. 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.

Everett and Mary Teller collaborate as a successful husband and wife team creating a vast array of sterling silver and gold jewelry along with other handcrafted items. Everett, born in 1956, began silver smithing in 1988. Mary was taught by her mother, Margaret Bochinclonny, and began silver smithing in 1972. Both husband and wife have received several awards for their work over the years.
