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 Bear fetish pottery was hand etched with outstanding 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.

    Snowcloud.
    Posted by David H. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    Finally I found your site and you had some jewelry with the "snowcloud" emblem on it! Thank you - we recently moved into a home that has the "snowcloud" emblem everywhere - from the front door to the fireplace and on to all cabinet doors in the kitchen and dining room. We love living here in Prescott and are constantly looking for items that have this emblem to add to our home. The earrings are stunning - I'll present them to my wife on our anniversary this year (48 years!).
