Paula says - "This piece is NOS (new old stock) that was made more than a decade ago but never sold - it is brand new vintage!"
On the back are a locking pin and a loop. This eagle can be worn as a pin or as a pendant.
Native American Eagle Symbolism
Eagle is a symbol of power, healing and wisdom. Eagle represents enlightenment reached through inner work, understanding and reclaiming our personal power. Tenacity, clear vision and patience, living in balance with Spirit and Earth. Eagle connects one with Great Spirit, the Great Mystery, opening the soul to greater healing. Eagle tells you that the universe is giving you the opportunity to fly above your life's worldly levels, or above the shadow of past realities, granting yourself permission to be free in order to reach all the joy that your heart desires and Spirit requires.
What is Chip Inlay?
Chip inlay is a method where cavities in jewelry are filled with a mixture of crushed stone, typically turquoise and coral, and epoxy resin. The piece is then polished smooth after the resin has hardened. Navajo artist Tommy Singer is credited for first using chip inlay in Native American jewelry.
