Materials: Arizona Desert Ironwood, Turquoise, Bone, Bear Claw (reproduction), Sterling Silver, Shell Heishi,
Measurements: Pendant height is 2 2/3 inches, almost 2 1/4 inches in width and half an inch thick including the Bear Fetish. The bear claws ( The best reproductions that can be found. The state of Arizona is very specific about selling real bear parts.) are 2 inches long measured around the curve. The hairbone beads are 1 inch long and the Sterling Silver beads are 3 mm.

This is a unique Native American inspired Arizona Desert Ironwood Pendant with a Turquoise Bear Fetish in the pendant, strung with two Bear Claws, two Turquoise nuggets and Bone Hairpipe beads all separated by 3 mm Sterling Silver beads. The necklace is about 25 inches long (can be shortened upon request). The pictures don't do the piece justice. I can say my photography isn't all that good so.............

Native American culture holds the Bear in high esteem. Bear symbolism imparts bravery.
As a totem animal, Bear brings to mind Patience & Connection, Confidence & Authority and Nurturing & Protection. Nothing is more protective and nurturing than a mother bear and her cubs. The Sioux Culture reveres the Bear as having healing symbolism. The Cree Culture considers the Bear as a symbol of a successful hunt and the Bear is thought of as a guest of honor in their preparations for a hunt. "The spiritual connections made with the bear makes it a brother to the First People".

No animals were harmed in the production of this piece.

I do my utmost to bring out the beauty of this exotic wood. I use only the heartwood from the standing but long dead trees that I collect. I cut and file and sand until I am satisfied that the piece is as good and smooth (14 different stages of sanding) as I can get it and then I apply a hand rubbed tung oil finish. Desert Ironwood is truly one of the most beautiful woods in the world with its rich colors and figure of grain. It is one of the hardest and densest woods in the world it’s actually heavier than water and will sink in water. Small separations in a knot add character to the wood and only add to the uniqueness of the piece.

I accept PayPal and will ship within two business days of receipt of payment.
