NEW! Beautiful Navajo spirit bear, heartline bear silver and gold overlay necklace. The highlight of the necklace is a solid yet hollow silver and gold spirit bear. It has a three dimensional appearance with stampwork and gold overlaid heartline arrow along with decoration overlaid in gold between the legs. The silversmith had attached five (5) decoratively cut and stamped with tribal symbols that run up both sides of the necklace. The artist has included gold overlay to four (4) of the ten (10) conchos. Each concho is connected to the next with heavy gauge soldered jump rings. The artist finishes by creating two hollow neck supports with a very large handmade shepherd's hook and teardrop clasp. I actually wore this necklace for a couple days and the neck support is very comfortable! It also allows the necklace to hang perfectly without sliding side to side. The artist has used a brushed satin sterling silver which gives the impression of aged or vintage patina.

The necklace measures 25" end to end with a wearable length of 13 3/4" from clasp to bottom of the spirit bear. The spirit bear measures 1 1/2" by 2 1/4" across by 1/4" thick. Each concho measures 1 3/8" by 5/8" across. The complete necklace weighs 76.7 grams (2.71 ounce or 2.47 troy ounces) and is stamped STERLING - hallmark by the artist. The gold is either 12KGF or possibly Red Jewelers Brass.  $449.95
