Overlay jewelry is made with two pieces of flat silver which is sawn into the shape of the finished piece.  The bottom piece is oxidized to turn it dark gray or black.  The images on the top piece are sawn out by hand and filed smooth.  The two pieces are soldered together and shaped into the finished piece, either a ring, earrings, pendant, or money clip.
