The overlay technique has been perfected by Hopi jewelry makers, and it is recognized as a Hopi style by many collectors. Hopi silversmith Ruben Saufkie does his overlay a little different. Instead of using two smooth piece of sterling silver plate He will many times incorporate a tufa cast layer that gives his work an eye-catching texture. Much of his work will incorporate symbols of water that essential for life. We have a handful of his pieces and have made a collection for you. This gorgeous pendant represents a bear claw. Each piece beautifully made with that incredible Ruben Saufkie style.
