Carved Kingman Turquoise Jaybird Pin/Pendant

By Darrell Shebola

This offering is sold.

Scrub jays hop around while pinon jays walk. Darrell Shebola's must-have sterling silver pin/pendant can be any variety of vivacious jaybird we're lucky enough to see, hear and enjoy. It's composed from carved Kingman turquoise, mother-of-pearl and jet inlaid in the challenging stone to stone jewelry technique. The small red coral leaf that adorns the silver branch is amazing, including the rhythmic blue and black hues of the fine tail feathers. Signed by the artist, this wondrous corvid pin/pendant is about 2" long and 2 1/4" wide. The lovely silver snake chain is not included but is available and sold separately here
