Beautiful vintage Hopi three piece Eagle-Bear Paw symbolized silver overlay collector's necklace. The silversmith has created three (3) sections with the center section sporting a symbolized eagle's bust with a symbolized full eagle overlaid to a textured blackened silver base. The two (2) side sections sport a bear paw with water and other symbols also overlaid to a textured blackened silver base. The three (3) sections are connected using heavy soldered rings. He finishes the necklace by making handmade "dot-dash-dot" styled chains with the ends sporting a shepherd's hook and double eye clasp.

The necklace measures approximately 19" long end to end with a wearable length of 10" measured from clasp to bottom of center section. The center section measures 11/16" by 1 9/16" across with both side sections measuring 3" by 11/16" wide at widest point. The handmade chains each measure 6" long which includes the clasp. The complete necklace weighs 49 grams (1.73 oz or 1.58 ozt) and it's hallmarked with a Young Corn Symbol - STERLING on the back 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 "LP connected" Click Here to see the other necklace. Very nice collectable vintage Hopi necklace!  $428.95
