This Zuni Thunderbird bracelet is inlaid with Mother of Pearl, jet, red coral, pink mussel shell, and natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise. It is not signed. There are two fans on each side inlaid with Gold Lip Mother of Pearl and jet. We estimate it was made in the 1970s or 1980s, maybe even before that time. More about Thunderbirds below.
