Pendant measures approximately 1-3/8" long (including bail) and 5/8" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite pendant that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Calvin Peterson 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 lovely Bear Paw and Water Wave design for an excellent 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 ring is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
