The bear is tradtionally seen as a totem of power and protection but is an equally good model of the power of respecting the cycles and seasons in our lives.
This handcarved pendant was made though the lost wax process. In this process, the design is carved out of wax very carefully with small files. A mold is then made around the wax and the wax is melted out. Once cleaned of its wax filling, the mold is then filled with sterling silver which is allowed to cool and is then removed. The seams from the mold are then ground off and the piece is thoroughly polished. The result is a smooth, shiny pendant that is solid .925 sterling silver with a soldered silver bail!
