This terrific Necklace showcases a Vintage Sterling Silver Navajo Bear adorned with a Sterling Feather. The Bear is beautifully shaped and has intricate stamping, including Sun Rays — a cultural symbol for "constant" — and an Arrow, which symbolizes "protection." The Bear is further ornamented with a Sterling Silver Feather, which swings from a small rod placed at the bottom of the design. The Bear has a custom Sterling Silver Bail — also marked with an Arrow — which is stamped on the back with "Sterling" and the artist's hallmark, "P." We've paired the Sterling Silver Bear with cognac-colored Amber Large Nuggets, which are a rare find at approximately 24-by-38mm in size. The Amber has a glossy, curvy surface, and when held to the light the inside occlusions are visible. Between the Nuggets we've placed lighter-hued clusters of Amber Chip, adding color depth and design interest. The Amber is highlighted by four 9mm Larry Pinto Sterling Silver Navajo Pearls, which are stamped and polished to a sheen. At the top of the Necklace the Amber Nuggets transition to 3 strands of Amber Chip, streamlining the silhouette. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 87 grams and is 24 inches long plus the Bear Pendant, which is 2 inches by 1-3/8 inches including the Bail.
