DESCRIPTION:

An offer like this will not last long! 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 Jasper 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 an extraordinary 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.

    Customer service on gorgeous bracelet
    Posted by Ruth B. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I have purchased many items from NAJ. Always thrilled. This time was over the top. I was concerned about the safety clasp on a beautiful silver bracelet. The customer service couldn’t have been better! Discussion by email, sharing of pictures, return of the bracelet to NAJ, and before they returned it to me, I received a picture of the fix and opportunity for full refund if not satisfied. It was all thoughtfully communicated and fast! The artistry on the pieces are so special. I just wished I lived near their shop!

    The earrings that I purchased are more beautiful than pictured. Ship was fast and choice of shipping was also fast, so there was very little delayed gratification. Thanks so much!
