This lovely pendant will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips 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 layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms a remarkable Bear Paw, Water Wave, and border pattern designs for an outstanding look. 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 water waves design represents continuous life. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
