This lovely belt buckle is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this belt buckle, the second layer forms a remarkable Bear, Bear Paw, and Prayer Sticks design that gives the piece an outstanding finish. In Native American beliefs, 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 bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". The belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
