Signed Lee Chee Navajo. Sleeping Beauty Mine Turquoise. 2.5″ X 1.6″. Will accept a belt of up to. 43.9 grams = 1.41 Troy ounces. Lee Chee Concho Belt Buckle. Lee is from Gallup, and he first used this stamp in 1974. Please, t ake a “magnified” look at the fine stamping. It is in Like-New “NOS” Condition… It this for you? If so, I’d love to trade with you today! In the book HOPI SILVER… Referenced below, Margaret Wright describes how Hopi silver is made and the post WWII history of its development in particular. She describes the 6 main steps in the creation of Overlay jewelry as we have come to know it. “A tracing design; b sawing design; c soldering design to backing; d texturing background; e filing to remove discoloration; f buffing”. I like her simple description comparing “overlay” to making cookie dough and using a cookie cutter to cut out stars, and then placing one layer of the dough with the cutouts on top of another (without cutouts) and then baking them. This Buckle was made using the “Overlay” technique, where two sheets of Sterling Silver are fused together. This enabled the artist to create the appearance that the surface had been carved out with the wonderful design that you see in the pictures. Sometimes the Matt or background areas are carved, blacked out, or filled with stones.. I will pack this carefully for you so that the conchos do not rub up against each other in transit and it will get to you in the same condition that you see in the pictures. I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience!
