Beautiful vintage Zuni multi stone inlay Thunderbird/Peyote Bird watchband. The artist has created multi stone inlays of the bird on both watch tips. She used turquoise, coral, black jet, yellow and white mother of pearl, and alabone in a mix of both stone-to-stone and silver channel inlay to create each bird adding silver drops connected to twisted wire that runs across the shoulder and down the outside of the wings. She finishes each watch tip by connecting a barrel tube watch shank pin holder and combines both large silver drops at bottom that works as both decoration and holding the wire stretchband connection. It comes with a vintage scissor type stretchband. I’d say the watch tips were made 60’s or 70’s era.

Each watch tip bird measures 1 1/2” by 13/16” across widest area. The watch shank barrel tubes measure 15mm (5/8”). The scissor type band measures 3” long and is not adjustable. We can exchange for a new link type stretchband if requested. Click Here to see the different lengths. The complete watchband weighs 26.3 grams and is hand signed Shirley Chavez - ZUNI. It also has what appears to be a vendor’s lot number. Beautiful vintage Zuni multi stone Thunderbird/Peyote Bird watchband! $189.95
