Four delightful feathered friends: a territorial blue jay, a shy red cardinal, a quick roadrunner and a determined Hummingbird come together in Eric Lonjose's handmade sterling silver link bracelet. The lovely birds are set in the channel inlay technique, with silver between pieces of carved spiny oyster shell, jet, turquoise, gold lip shell, pen shell, abalone, lapis and mother-of-pearl. The intricacy of their plumage is stunning. Each station measures approximately 3/4" to 1" long, while the overall length of this link bracelet is about 8" long. Signed by the artist.
