DESCRIPTION:

We bring to you this lovely figurine! This piece of Native American Pottery is Navajo hand crafted by artist Ben Livingston, out of real Alabaster, Turquoise, Coral, Jasper, and Feathers. The Alabaster stone is hand carved into an adorable Bear fetish, while inlaid Turquoise and a real Jasper stone creates the Bear's eyes and tongue. Feathers, Turquoise, and Coral beads, along with other hand carved patterns can be seen accenting the figurine for a magnificent finish. 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.

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.

    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.
