West Coast Haida Bear Native Earrings


Wholesale copper earrings are handcrafted in cut out jewelry style style in Northwest Haida Native bear totem design. The Bear is a symbol of power, strength and healing. In West Coast culture, the legends tell of a high ranking woman had insulted the bear. Two Bears nearby heard her and decided they would punish her for such insolence. One Bear transformed himself into a very handsome man who she fell in love with, married him and had twin cubs. Their children were born as little creatures that resembled bears who could metamorphose themselves into human form like their father. All Bear Clan members are descended from this woman and her two sons. Because of this, it is believed that there is a bear within all of us and that we must come to terms with this in our lives.
