This statement necklace is inspired by the native american thunderbird.
The name of the Thunderbird name originates from the belief that the beating of its enormous wings causes thunder and stirs the wind. The Native Americans believed that the giant Thunderbird could shoot lightning from its eyes. Thunder was believed to be a sign the spirits were at war in the skies but this also foretold of victory for tribal wars fought on the ground.
The Thunderbird pendant is 1.4" high by 1.8" wide and the necklace is 17" total length.
It includes hand painted turquoise highlights and antique brass or silver plated chain. Hand finished with a beeswax/mineral oil mixture.
