Vintage Zuni Inlay Thunderbird Earrings
Little Zuni thunderbird earrings of channel set inlay stones are so fun to wear. If you're familiar with vintage Zuni inlay jewelry, you might have seen similar thunderbird designs, but for the person who isn't well-versed in Native American jewelry these earrings are wholly unique and super cool in a world of sameness.
Also noteworthy: the body of one little feathered friend is darker in color than the other. Was this meant to be? Did the color of one deepen over time? Did the original buyer accidentally receive one from two different pairs of earrings? We will never know for sure, but the net effect is a vintage pair of earrings that is even more unusual.
Totally comfortable, the petite earrings measure 3/4" x 1/2" and are posts for pierced ears.
