Vintage Opal Kachina Owl Pendant Kachina Zuni Indian Sterling Silver Double Sided Mosaic

Regular price $395.00

So finely crafted and large in size is this handsome double sided Zuni made Hopi Kachina pendant, inlaid with a glittering mosaic of opal gems on one side, and a jasper stone with bear claw motif on the other, circa late 80s early 90s.

The vintage Southwestern Indian pendant has a sterling silver base and is in the form of the Owl Kachina.  It has a sculptural face with high dimensional details and simulated feathers, along with a stylized bear claw shaped body set with a geometric mosaic inlay of fire opals featuring a dappling light display of rainbow colors – with black onyx and silver wire trim.

The body of the pendant is reversible and swivels to display a design featuring bear claw piercework, textured surface reticulation, and a high bezel flush set with a swirled sandy colored jasper gemstone.

The expanse of the opal mosaic measures approximately 1&1/3 wide by 1&1/2 inches high, while the pendant itself measures a generous 1&11/16 inches wide at its widest point and hangs approximately 3&5/8 inches from top to base.

It has a shepard’s hook bail, weighs a considerable 38.3 grams, and is marked “Sterling”.
