Designed by master Navajo artist Ernest Bilagody Sr. Who is considered one of the best in the industry & is known for'keeping it real' with his traditional Navajo jewelry & some of the finest workmanship! In a modern time, Ernest takes a step back in time when creating this vintage revival style Thunderbird pin!! Don't be fooled to think this is a 60+ year old pin!
Ernest just did a great job at replicating an authentic look! The bird faces right & has somewhat of a boxey shape.. The cut out design is superb, the stamp work is precise!Giving contrast to the darkened oxidized sterling is a lime color cabochon of natural green Carico Lake turquoise. The light/dark contrast gives this some'pop' in color. Perfect for any western style outfit & especially when worn with some jeans & boots!! This will spice up any Santa Fe western style look! Imagine wearing this on a cowboy/girl hat, fringe leather jacket or purse, lapel, tie, concho studded velvet clothing, etc... Perfect for man or woman! MEASUREMENTS:1-7/8" X 1-5/8"(Wide & Tall).
