To Celebrate the Snow...
Here's a little something I've been working on. It's fitting given all the snow we've been getting up here in Canada.
White Bear's Journey
Zuni carver, Everett Pinto, carved this white marble bear with the turquoise heart line. The bear has been wrapped in heavy sterling and the necklace has been strung with white moon shell heishi beads, hematite beads, and nuggets of vintage Sleeping Beauty turquoise from the legendary closed mine in Arizona.
The Bear is a symbol of strength, with power from within. The heart line, which starts at the mouth of the bear (where breath gives life) and point to the soul (where faith, spirit and inner strength reside).
