A THUNDERING THUNDERBIRD

This impossible-to-ignore buckle was crafted by renowned Zuni artist Alice Leekya Homer; she is known for her intricate inlay work which she has displayed within this gorgeous piece. The impressive channel inlay design features a thunderbird crafted from onyx, turquoise, coral, and mother of pearl set in heavy silver. The buckle is paired with a vintage black leather strap to help those bold colors pop. Truly a piece that you will not want to miss out on.
