This silver bear fetish and silver eagle feather is designed and handcrafted by award winning artist Erick Begay. This piece is made out of sterling silver and embellished with genuine stone accents. It is displayed with a 1.2mm round omega chain (sold seperately).
To the Native Americans there are six directions: north, south, east, west, the underground, and the sky. The eagle is the symbol of the sky. The eagle represent loyalty and integretity.
The bear is a symbol of strength and protection. It is decorated with a heartline; the heartline is inspired by petroglyphs that incorporate the same symbolism. The heartline is interpreted to mean life/source of life.
This piece measure two inches long, and 5/8 inches wide (includes an 18 inch small silver rope chain-not shown).
