This Sterling silver thunderbird barrette made by Navajo silversmith Tim Yazzie is decorated with stampwork motifs and a "bumped up" repoussée center diamond. Tim lightly brushed his silver and applied an oxidizing agent to give this piece an "old pawn" finish. This has the standard French-manufactured pressure-hinge mechanism on back. Width between the hinges is 2" (where the hair fits).
Hallmarked T.YAZZIE and stamped Sterling.
Overall dimensions: 4" x 1 1/2"
