During the Great Depression, artisans in the Santo Domingo tribe developed the art of upcycling found materials into beautiful mosaic jewelry, such as in this vintage necklace. Made with hand-cut turquoise from the Cerillos mine, gypsum beads and bits of red plastic from found objects, the necklace is centered with a thunderbird, considered a symbol of strength and the most powerful of all spirits. Sinew cord tie. Made in USA. Exclusive. One of a kind. 22"L. Tabs approx. 1"L; bird approx 2-1/4"H x 1-1/2"W.
