Navajo jeweler, Lucille Platero, made these sterling silver bear earrings.  She stamped a graceful heartline that goes from the face back towards the tail.  She set a bright blue turquoise above the back leg.  They dangle from sterling silver wires.

Bears are the guardians of the western gate in Zuni Pueblo.  They are associated with healing at all levels, protection, and a reminder to restore oneself during the winter months.  In some traditions a part of the bear is rubbed all over infants to imbue them with power, strength, and good health.
