You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Peggy Skeets, out of genuine sterling silver and 14 karat gold. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or gold. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pair of earrings the second layer creates charming bear deigns for a fantastic look. In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". The earrings are stamped sterling, 14K, and hallmarked by the artist.
