Pin measures approximately 5/8" long and 3/4" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite pin that must not be overlooked! This piece of Hopi jewelry is overlay hand crafted out of authentic 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 phenomenal bear and water wave design. The pendant is stamped sterling.
In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper".
In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life.
