$189.00

Lovely handcrafted sterling bear and concho necklace. Handmade circa 1980s in southwest design; little conchos separated by geometric links with turquoise and a bear pendant. Light and easy to wear, nicely made with a quirky design. These are Native American motifs and the signature is in keeping with the way these pieces are signed but the style is quite different so it may be inspired by.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.
