How was it made? Native American silver dangle earrings were handmade using the overlay technique. Navajo silversmith Sam Gray uses heaier gauge sterling silver on the top 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 dangle earrings are then hand-stamped, the background is textured and chemically oxidized and the silver is polished to a high shine.

Sam Gray was born in 1964.  His father was from the Zuni Pueblo and his mother was Navajo.  He is known for his use of heavy gauge sterling silver and quality stones.  Sam Gray has been providing beautiful earrings, rings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, buckles and bolo ties to redrocktrading.com since the late 1990’s.  When Sam is not making museum-quality Native American jewelry, he spends time on his ranch near the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico tending to his cattle and riding horses.
