Smaller Red Tail Thunderbird Pendant

By Isaac Coriz, Kewa (Santo Domingo)

This offering is sold.
Do you love Kewa (Santo Domingo) mosaic thunderbirds but are looking for something more delicate? This smaller pendant by Isaac Coriz might be just the thing you are looking for. Turquoise from multiple mines of different colors and matrix are overlaid onto mother of pearl shell. Mother of pearl shell caps the head and red coral creates a red stipe at the bottom of the tail. Isaac used a turquoise bead for the eye. With Isaac's signature raincloud incised on the back this bird is 2 1/4" long including generous handmade silver wire bale, and 7/8" wide, making it very easy to wear.
