How was it made? Native American turquoise bolo tie was custom handmade using the overlay technique. Sam Gray uses heavy gauge sterling silver so the designs are prominent and the reliefs are deep. The designs are hand-cut using a jeweler's saw. The remaining sheet of silver or negative design is then soldered to the bottom sheet. The silver bolo is then hand-stamped, the background is textured and oxidized and the silver is polished to a shine. The heavy gauge, handmade sterling silver bezel highlights the beauty of the stone.
