A rare and iconic turquoise and coral chip inlay in an old pawn piece we picked up from family friends in the SW. This comes from the family's extensive collection.
Approximately 30" in length, + each piece is 1.5" wide.
Sterling silver, natural coral + turquoise.
Made in Northern NM, shows fine Navajo chip inlay work.
Peyote birds come from the planes tribes, not from the Four Corners. They are associated with lightning, thunder + visions. The Lakota say the birds remind us not take ourselves too seriously.
This in a one and only piece and when it is gone, it's gone!
