This link bracelet is bronze and looks like gold. It is inlaid with 6 bears of different stones and shells--phosphosiderite, stabilized sugilite, mother-of-pearl, turquoise, Imperial volute shell, and spiny oyster. The accent stones are lapis, turquoise and spiny oyster. Each image is individually hand-carved by Andrew Shows, and then it takes 17 steps to complete each piece. Each carving holds mythical symbolism. The bears stand for strength, courage and long life.
