This item is a brand new retail packaged, well crafted pendant created from the finest high-quality Nickel-free pewter and featuring a black resin bear paw print on the front. It comes ready to wear on an adjustable cord (approx 14″ to 30″ long) although it would look fine on your own favourite chain. The pendant is 36mm high (including loop) and 32mm wide. In Native American Indian culture, the bear is seen as the protector and symoblises physical strength and leadership. The bear’s ability to be both gentle and fierce, and demonstrating complex behaviours, inspired the Native Americans and regarded the bear with awe and respect, and in some tribes they thought of the bear as a god. The paw is a symbol of direction and power, providing guidance and strength to the wearer. It is a lovely symbolic pendant which we’re certain you’ll be proud of – a perfect gift or a treat for yourself!
