Native American Jewelry: NA032

 

SIGN OF SKY AND WATER ( Native American Hopi Indian Ring ): Turquoise symbolizes the sky and water to the Southwest Indian tribes. This deep blue bezel set turquoise has plenty of matrix to give it character and focus as the centerpiece in this lovely Sterling Silver ring. Done in the overlay style that has become synonymous with Hopi jewelry, this distinctive work was developed in 1938. In overlay a design is traced onto and cut out of a piece of sheet silver which is then soldered to another plain piece of silver. The areas revealed by the cutouts are oxidized black and textured by hand. The asymmetrical disc of this ring has great “eye appeal”. It has been in by collection for 20 years. Hallmarked by the Hopi Silvercraft Guild and by the artist.
 
Condition: Excellent. Ring size: 5 1/2”.
Size: Design motif 1 1/4” by 1 1/4” with angles. Turquoise stone 3/4” by 1/2”.
