Smiling Bear Bracelet

A charming bear fetish carved of naturally shed antler with turquoise inlays decorates this Southwest charmer.  It was made by Troy Sice, a member of the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico.  Sterling silver findings and blue shell pearl beads (glass beads that use the ground pearl nacre as a component of their coating) reflect the blue of the vast New Mexico sky.  A fetish is meant to confer upon its wearer the prime characteristics of the animal – in this case, the bear’s strength and resourcefulness.  The bracelet will fit most wrists comfortably.
