Special Price $29.99

Pot measures approximately 3-7/8" tall, 2" wide, and is 5-5/8" long (front to back).

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 fascinating 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.

    My third purchase
    Posted by Jerome G. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I bought a nice pendant this time along with a sterling bear claws money clip. This is great value for hand made jewelry. As I mentioned previously, I guarantee anyone can find something beautiful and affordable. There also was a discount so keep an eye out for those. Shipping is always free and fast.

    Beautiful ring.

    The picture didn't do the opals justice. The ring was more beautiful in person and fit perfectly.
