Reversible Thunderbird Pendant Necklace

By Isaac Coriz, Kewa (Santo Domingo)

This offering is sold.

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.
