I was melting down a pile of scrap silver for a pendant and the molten metal assumed the shape of...a bear! I had to go with it. The only things I did were a little defining of the legs and some light sanding. I really liked the organic shape and weight so I made a mold and casted more (because there was no way I could make others in the same way). The 18K yellow gold bear is three-quarters of an inch by one-half inch and hangs from a 14K yellow gold snake chain. Wishing the wearer of this necklace the courage, protection and strength that the (serendipitous) bear represents.
