Paul Saufkie Eagle Bolo Tie by Lawrence Saufkie

Lawrence Saufkie was the son of Paul Saufkie.  Paul Saufkie, along with Fred Kaboutie, developed the Hopi style of Silver Overlay jewelry.

Overlay was a major advancement in Southwest Jewelry (circa 1940).  

Not only was the overlay technique important, but the ancient designs used were too.  It freed silversmiths to explore their art even further.

Before Saufkie and Kaboutie, Hopi Jewelry looked much like Navajo Jewelry with designs that looked Moorish or Spanish. Overlay was a major turning point in Southwest jewelry. Today there is not a silversmith worth his salt that does not know Overlay. 

At the time (around 2005), I asked Lawrence to give us work that was like that of his father... a tribute to Paul Saufkie.   Here is a vintage, Paul Saufkie, Hopi Thunderbird.  Perfectly executed by Lawrence.

Blue Green, Fox Mine, Spider Turquoise is featured.

Lawrence Saufkie black leather tie and his cone shaped bolo tie tips are included

Lawrence had an amazing career himself. He and his art was often published and won numerous awards. Lawrence Saufkie tragically died with his silversmith son, Wilmer, in a car accident.

The Bolo Tie is 3 3/4" Long

This bolo tie and one other are the only two in existence.. They were made
by Lawrence at my request. They are made of extra heavy (thick) gauge silver. They were made using 1930's Paul Saufkie designs and with
turquoise.  Lawrence rarely added turquoise to his jewelry.
