Philander Begay, Bear Claw Ring, Black and Blue Turquoise
Navajo tufa cast artist Philander Begay made this large paw ring. He has created the piece by carving it from tufa. The five claws are carved out and raise above the bottom. Philander uses a piece of China Mountain Turquoise that is filled with a black and blue color for the paw. You will like the large display and the comfortable tapered band. All of the cast silver is finished with that earthy texture that compliments the design perfectly. Philander also carved a bear paw on the inside of the band, a great way to bring the ring together.
