Hopi Overlay Bird Man Necklace By Ramon Dalangyawma
This contemporary silver overlay necklace is handmade by Hopi artist Ramon Dalangyawma. Atop the textured and oxidized silver pendant is a whimsical figure, part man and part bird, part frontal view and part side view. The striking pendant hangs from a round herringbone silver chain that closes with a turquoise clasp.
The necklace is so unusual that it easily becomes a statement piece. Signed on the reverse, the pendant measures 2 1/2" to top of bale x 1 3/8". The chain measures 18 1/2" from end to end.
