This gorgeous pendant is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Alonzo Mariano, out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms a beautiful Bear, Arrow, Thunderbird, and Arrowhead design. Stamped patterns can be seen accenting pendant for a delightful finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". Arrows usually signify direction of travel, force, and movement. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
