We bring to you this wonderful necklace! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist T. Thomas, out of genuine sterling silver. Hand crafted silverwork creates wonderful bear designs in the center piece, and a fabulous bear paw design in the pendant. Stamped patterns finish the necklace for a stunning look. In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". The bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The pendant is stamped sterling.
