The Bear symbol is important in Native American spirituality as it represents a protector and symbolizes courage, physical strength and leadership. Bears are strong, agile, and quick and signify a good omen and convey authority. The heartline begins at the mouth where breath gives life and points to the soul, or spirit, where faith and inner strength preside. The heartline is an arrow going from its head to the heart and shows the Indian warrior's heart is strong like the bears.*

Condition: Brand new old stock, may show some other very light wear from storage and some natural patina & tarnishing. Personal preferences vary greatly for the amount of patina on vintage jewelry, therefore I tend to sell jewelry "as found" and leave polishing up to the new owner.
These pendants, and a lot more of my jewelry, were acquired from a gift shop in Montana that was clearing out old merchandise after a change in ownership. I have a variety of styles and types of NOS jewelry, so please take a look around my shop.
