Tufa Cast Thunderbird Pendant

By Joel Pajarito, Kewa (Santo Domingo)

Animal: Thunderbird, Material: Sterling Silver
This offering is sold.
Thunderbirds are powerful beings that create thunder and lightning, even calling forth life-giving rain. Award-winning jeweler Joel Pajarito's sterling silver tufa cast thunderbird pendant is a thing of beauty, making a stunning statement. A warm sun or perhaps a bright moon, star and growing corn adorn the necklace-wearing bird. Tufa casting is a time consuming way of making traditional jewelry. Tufa stone is a compressed volcanic ash material. It is easier to carve than sandstone and its porous surface leaves a unique texture once the metal has cooled. About 2" long and 1 5/8" wide. Signed by the artist. Please note the brown leather cord is for display purposes and is not included.
