Chip inlay became very popular in the late 1970s and into the 80s. This unique style where you take the stone chips and set them in inlay has a very Southwest look. You will find this magnificent piece is a combination of blue turquoise and red coral chip inlay. The design is a classic Native American Church symbol, the Peyote Bird. Each bird has a tail that has been designed in a traditional squash blossom shape. A big Naja finishes the necklace that has gorgeous water symbols ground across the center. Everything is strung on sterling silver handmade beads and showcases a aged patina look.
