This mosaic inlay thunderbird Necklace by Kewa Pueblo jeweler , Chris Nieto, is a show stopper. The turquoise, mother of pearl, jet, and red spiny oyster shell are inlaid on to black epoxy. Using material that is not natural hearkens back to the great depression when Kewa jewelers used carved toothbrushes, music records, plastic casings on wires and other materials to make their jewelry. The thunderbird is strung on 3 strands of onyx beads and has a sterling silver hook and eye clasp. The bale on the back is large enough for a variety of different bead choices.
Special! Price was $1100 .00- now $880.00!
