This stunning Bear fetish pottery was hand etched with gorgeous traditonal patterns by Navajo artist Tom Vail Jr. This beautiful style of Navajo art is called horse hair pottery because actual horse hair is added to the pottery at just the right moment in the firing process to melt the hairs into the pottery, creating unique and incredible designs. 

In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper".

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.

    Baby Bracelet
    Posted by Ginger W. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    The bracelet is stunning! My daughter wanted to get it as a shower gift for her sister's baby. My daughter has a jewelry set handmade by Indians that my grandfather gave her. So, that is where her idea came from.
