Bear Teardrop Sterling Silver Pendant designed by Richard Krentz from the Coast Salish Nation. This pendant symbolizes a bear that has been carved into the highest grade of silver with an engraver and hand-finished in the Comox Valley, B.C., Canada.
In Coast Salish Culture the bear symbol traditionally represents strength and health and is usually found at the base of many totem poles. A Bear is of great support and comfort to those who crave human company simply for personal reassurance rather than for the simple pleasure of being with friends. Bear makes lonely periods of life far easier.
The pendant is 1 3/8 inches long and close to 1 inch wide.
A silver chain is not included but can be purchased separately here.
