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. This extraoridinary Bear fetish pottery was hand etched with traditonal patterns by Navajo artist Tom Vail Jr.

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.

    So my girls can “ring” in their New Years
    Posted by Ham B. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I sent a ring to each one of my girls who have families of their own. Quality workmanship. My wife looked at them and the ring I got for each girl was perfect. Quick turnaround from ordering to delivery. Will do business with them again.
