Hand-crafted North West Native carved spirit beads are Nicol Street Pawnbrokers' most popular gift idea. Spirit beads represent many of the North West Native Legends.
The versatility of these sterling silver beads make them the perfect gift for a family member or visitor to beautiful British Columbia. They measure only 5/8 of an inch in width and 1/2 an inch in diameter making them a subtle accent to any ensemble or to be worn every day. They can be displayed as a pendant to compliment our huge selection of Italian Sterling Silver chains and necklaces or the perfect accent to our Murano Collection necklaces and bracelets as well as any existing "Pandora" style bracelet. Choose your favorite, collect them all or give them to that special someone to commemorate an event.
Animal symbols and legends are an important part of Vancouver Island First Nation culture and history. Every animal, spirit or supernatural being symbolizes different historical stories, traits, personalities and values.
