Vintage Southwestern Carved Bird Sponge Coral Heishi Fetish Necklace #c367

Regular price $21.00
For offer today, I have this pretty Southwestern fetish bird necklace!

This lovely necklace features carved mother of pearl fetish birds that alternate with sections of unpolished red sponge coral and white mother of pearl heishi beads. There are a total of four birds in the necklace, each one carved and slightly different from the other. The bird and heishi sections are separated by silvertone bead accents. The necklace closes with a silvertone barrel clasp. The reddish-orange color of the textured sponge coral heishi beads with the pinkish-white MOP heishi beads and birds is such a striking combination!

The necklace measures about 16 inches long. The heishi beads are approximately 4.5mm wide and the birds are about 9mm wide. The necklace is unsigned.

I love the rich color of the sponge coral in this beautiful necklace! It would look wonderful worn with outfits of coral, white, black and even brown. The necklace is in very good vintage condition. The necklace doesn't lay completely straight or flat, which is common to these types of beaded necklaces, but it sits fine on the neckline with a little bit of a natural wave. Some of the silvertone beads appear to have remnants of a gold finish which has worn away in areas. It's a fab vintage find!
