How was it made? Native American pendant was 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 and the outide edge is hand-cut and filed. The pendant is then hand-stamped, the background is textured and oxidized and the silver is polished to a shine. The dark background is burned onto the silver and will not chip, fade or peel.
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.
