Carlton Jamon's lovely, all hand-fabricated sterling silver and jet Bear pendant necklace is about 27 1/2" in total length, while the center bear pendant is about 1 3/8" long and 1 1/4" wide. All the bear's are created in the hollow form building technique, which gives them mass without adding weight. We also see many pretty sterling silver and jet beads on this double-strand necklace. The eye-catching center bear has a heartline design, which represents the breath or essence of an animal. Signed by the artist.

Highest on the necklace are two Beavers, one is carved of luscious mother of pearl shell, the other of Picasso marble. There are two Eagles, again one is mother of pearl shell but the other is a rich green serpentine. There is a Frog of Picasso marble and a Badger of red coral. Just above the bear pendant are two graceful birds of mother of pearl shell. Each animal has inlaid eyes of black jet or bright turquoise and range in size from 3/4" to 1 1/2" long.
