Pot measures approximately 3-5/8" tall, 2-1/8" wide, and is 5-1/2" long (front to back).

This beautiful style of Navajo art is called horse hair pottery because actual horse hair is added to the pottery at just the right moment in the firing process to melt the hairs into the pottery, creating unique and incredible designs. This elegant Bear fetish pottery was hand etched with traditonal patterns by Navajo artist Tom Vail Jr.

In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper".

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.

    Bought for a gift and she loves them. Glad the magenta turquoise was truly purple as it’s her favorite color. Great purchase all around. Love Silver Tribes’ jewelry!

    Sterling silver turquoise bear paw keychain
    Posted by Willow P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    Making this purchase was difficult for the site is not fully usable for persons reliant on screen reader software but ultimately, I did purchase the keychain; which I love. The manner in which one unlocks the chain to add keys assures that it will not come undone and keys will not be lost. I love turquoise and own many American Native made pieces. I will shop with SilverTribe again. There is a 1-5 rating but it does not indicate best or worst.
