Paula says - "You are buying two watch tips. Beautiful overlay by noted Navajo artist Tommy Singer. The medicine bear with heartline is a striking and very classy design.
"The term Watch Tips refers to the two Native American made decorative panels that connect the timepiece to the expansion band. Neither the timepiece nor the expansion band are sterling silver nor Native American made . They are included with the tips as a convenience so you can use the watch right away. You can replace them if you so choose."
"We include at no extra charge an expansion band and a timepiece with battery (none of which are sterling silver nor Native American made)."
The heart line is a line etched, painted or inlaid along one or both sides of the animal. It usually extends from the mouth to the region of the heart. There are many interpretations as to what a heart line represents, but it is often said to represent the pathway of the breath of the animal to the life force which is the heart. Others feel that the heart line points to the soul of the animal. It is thought that a heart line gives the animal fetish healing or medicinal power.
