Petoskey Sleeping Bear Necklace
If you're not familiar with the Ojibwe legend of Sleeping Bear Dunes you should look it up - it's one of the most hauntingly beautiful stories I've heard, and just one of the many reasons I love Michigan. These Petoskey bears are the perfect representation of the legend and our great state. Perfect for your Michigan loving friend, or as a keepsake to remind you of summers spent Up North.
Set in sterling silver with a sterling silver cable chain. The piece measures 18" from end to end, and the bear measures nearly 2" long and 1" tall. This is a statement piece for sure! The reverse is stamped with the great state of Michigan, my makers mark, and the .925 sterling mark.
I do my best to capture the color and quality of all of the pieces though phone screens and computer monitors vary.
