This beautiful micro inlay bear piece was made by Navajo artist Ray Jack. Ray has made a name for himself with his spectacular inlay designs. The tiny detail and keen use of color sets his designs apart from many of his peers.
The pendent features micro inlay bear using onyx as the background and inlaying it with turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, malachite and tiny drilled holes filled with sterling silver. The piece is finished with a sterling bezel with twist rope, stamp work and droplets near the foot. Finally it hangs from a large sterling bail set with a onyx droplet.
The chain is created of onyx beads accented with turquoise and sterling with a sterling hook and eye.
