BEAR BEARING BEAR ( Vintage Native American Navajo Indian Reversible Pendant ): This is most likely a fertility symbol with a small greenish, probably serpentine, carved Bear Fetish inside a nice sized Sterling Silver Bear Pendant. The bear is associated with great strength, power and healing to the Native Americans. He is a spiritual guide and carries within him supernatural powers. The reversible silver bear is decorated on one side with stampwork and a Jet bezel set stone – and with overlay decorations of a heart line, a bolt of lightning and a bear paw on the other. A decorative silver feather dangles below and the bear hangs from a large silver bale. Inside the bale it is marked “STERLING” and the hallmark of a feathered hat. It could be worn on a silver chain or beads, but I think it looks best on a silver neck wire as shown in the photos. May he bring beauty and good health to you.

Size: Total length 4”. Silver bear 1 1/2” high, 1 7/8” long, 3/16” deep. Green bear 3/4” long, 1/2” high. Feather 1 3/4” long, 5/8” wide.
