Thunderbird Ring

Vintage

Handmade vintage Native American ring in sterling silver. At its center, a turquoise stone sits in a single snake eye setting within a thunderbird. Ring size 4. 

Though the Native American Tribes had been working with metal for generations, new and more precise silver working techniques were introduced in the 1800’s by artists from Mexico. As new techniques and tools were developed and shared across Native America, jewelry-makers began to achieve a much greater level of precision with their work.

Please note that due to their delicate nature all of our vintage items are final sale.
