Sanford Edaakie carefully crafted this sterling silver cardinal pendant using a technique called overlay-inlay where two pieces of silver are laid over each other to create a depression in which stones and shell can be inlaid.
For this lovely pendant, a cardinal was created using coral, jet, gold lip shell and abalone. The reflective quality of the shell specimens is great. About 1 5/8" long and 1" wide, signed by the artist. The silver snake chain is sold separately here.
