There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Ralph Bia, 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 pair of earrings, the second layer forms a breathtaking bear paw design, while imprinted patterns accent for a delightful finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked.
