This sterling silver Thunderbird looks seriously powerful!  It has a water drop shaped turquoise stone set in the middle.  It is actually made with two sheets of silver.  The bottom sheet is oxidized to turn it dark gray.  The designs are cut out of the top sheet of silver, the edges are filed down, and it is soldered onto the bottom.  The eyes and details above the feathers are stamped on by hand.  The bale is large enough for a thicker chain.

Size: 2" H x 1.125" W

Thunderbirds are understood to be intelligent forces of nature with the power of thunder.  They are sometimes associated with lightening.
