Hopi Indians were the first Native American jewelry makers to master silver overlay: two sheets of silver joined, one atop the other, with negative space on the top layer. The underlying sheet is treated to turn black and accent the cut-out image. Other Indian artisans, especially Navajos, have also used the technique.
