Navajos believe in not wasting anything. Even when creating jewelry. After cutting and shaping turquoise stones we use the dust to create stunning pieces like this. The dust is used in these bracelets to create bear paws. Arizona produces the highest quality of turquoise you can get in the world. This is a very unique one of a kind piece. It is different from the bracelet we usually carry. Finished with a steel wool texture then inlayed with chip turquoise inside the bear paws. The medicine bear increases strength, protection and power. In olden stories he was the first medicine man. He showed us what herbs we could eat or use for medicine. So he also increases good health. In our olden stories we followed him around to learn what we could and could not eat. He taught us the medicines of the forest.
Arizona's blue turquoise is the best shades you can get in the entire world. I love this piece because it varies in shades throughout the bracelet. Navajo Turquoise increases wealth and good fortune. Not wealth with money but with your family and community. My uncle is well known Navajo silversmith in the Arizona. He uses heavy gauges silver and includes incredible detail on every piece. This newer style of silversmith-ing is referred to as shadow boxing. It takes three different layers of silver to create this effect. This is a brand new design and has become my favorite to wear!
