This Navajo bear fetish necklace was part of a collection of older Native American jewelry.  Eleven bears are beautifully strung together.  Each bear has an offering bundle on top with turquoise, shell, and tiny red beads.  They are strung with pen shell heishi and end with an oxidized, sterling silver hook and eye clasp.

Size: 27" Long - Bears are approximately .675" H x 1" W

Bears are associated with healing at all levels, protection, and a reminder to restore oneself during the winter months.  In some traditions a part of the bear is rubbed all over infants to imbue them with power, strength, and good health.
