Trade Beads – Grizzly In the Cedars

Grizzly In the Cedars, Trade Beads with Handcarved Sterling Silver Grizzly Bear Pendant created by Walker Goldsmiths.  The authentic, antique Trade Beads in this necklace are Carnelian, Coral, Orange Padres, Jasper, Jet, Onyx, Jade, Horn, Amber, Watermelon Chevrons and Venetian Fancy’s, all strung up with a Black Lip Pearl Shell button for a clasp. I used green Jade and Chevrons, brown Horn and Venetian Fancies to give the feeling of the forest with Black Jet and Onyx to create shadows, but the wonderful variation of red cedar colors in the Carnelians, Amber, Corals, Jasper and Horn ruled the day. Any Grizzly in his right mind would live in this colorful cedar forest!

Owen Walker Handcarved this Northwest Coast Style Sterling Silver Bear Pendant. Sometimes in this style of art it’s hard to tell the difference between a bear or a wolf, but the hand/paw is the definitive design aspect that helps you know when you’re looking at a bear.  A wolf has that wonderful tail that makes it different than the bear.  Grizzly In the Cedars, Trade Beads with Handcarved Sterling Silver Grizzly Bear Pendant created by Walker Goldsmiths. Pendant measures 1″ x 2″.  This necklace length is 24″ and can be custom made to the length you want…  $ 525.
