Beautiful heavy vintage Hopi Bear Paw-Owl silver overlay collector's spinner necklace. The silversmith has created a large heavy elongated spinner pendant with a cut out overlay of a bear paw and tribal symbols on one side and a perched owl on a tree branch on the opposite side. The artist attaches a long silver pin with head off the top of the pendant that sets into the handmade silver bale allowing the pendant to freely spin varying on which side the wearer wants to display. The silversmith has also made a handmade link chain necklace for the pendant.

The chain measures 24" long end to end with a wearable length including the pendant of 14 3/4" measured from clasp to bottom of pendant. The handmade hook clasp can be hooked to any of the links if you prefer a shorter necklace length. The complete necklace weighs 49.1 grams (1.73 oz or 1.58 ozt) with the heavy pendant itself weighing 39.2 grams (1.38 oz or 1.26 ozt). It's hallmarked LP connected - STERLING on the bale by noted Hopi silversmith Larry (Lawrence) Pooyouma (deceased 1991). From my understanding he produced from 1975 up to his death in 1991 and his work is very rare and collectable. We happened to stumble across two (2) of his necklace pieces which the other necklace sports his other hallmark of a "Young Corn Symbol" Click Here to see the other necklace. Very nice collectable vintage Hopi necklace!  $428.95
