Isaac Coriz, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
is backordered. We will ship it separately when it becomes available.
Isaac Coriz's traditional thunderbird design is reminiscent of Depression era jewelry. His motif is shown in reversible pendant form on five luscious strands of glowing labradorite, turquoise, jet and sterling silver beads.
Creatively arranged pieces of jet, turquoise, mother-of-pearl and reflective labradorite have been overlaid on a bed of mother-of-pearl to form one side, while the mother-of-pearl side features an incised hand element, perhaps representative of unity and creativity. Each bird has a turquoise bead for an eye.
What's also versatile about this fabulous necklace is that the thunderbird pendant itself is removable from the strands, making it easy to place on another form of suspension if desired.
The overall length of this gorgeous pendant necklace is about 19 1/2". The hand-stamped sterling silver bale fixture with thunderbird pendant measures approximately 4" long and 1 3/4" wide.

A rich line of Zuni artists descends from George Cheechee Haloo (d). He was an important innovator who started carving in the 1930's and was known for his fetish necklaces. Today, Rosita Kaamasee carries on in the traditional art through her collectible fetish necklaces, honoring her family's legacy. She recently furnished us with this amazing single strand fetish necklace consisting of many wonderfully carved birds and Bears, strung with lovely turquoise heishe beads. Each fetish has red coral inlaid eyes. The feathered friends average about 1 1/8" in length, while the bears are about 3/4" long. The overall length of this stunning fetish necklace is about 32".
Veronica Poblano's artistic Zuni lineage is important. Her father, iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d) was the nephew of Teddy Weahkee (d). Their enormous contribution to Zuni fetish carving and jewelry continues with Veronica and her daughter Jovanna Poblano.
