Expect plenty of compliments while wearing this gorgeous pin! This piece of Hopi jewelry is overlay hand crafted 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 layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pin, the second layer forms a stunning bear paw design. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
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.
