Large vintage Kewa carved 3pc turquoise and mother of pearl three dimensional flying eagle necklace. The eagle consists of three (3) separate hand carved pieces with the body including a mother of pearl beak and inlay onyx eyes. The body is three dimensional with silver twisted wire clawed feet and sets inside a “spoon shaped” silver casing that runs evenly with the contour of the birds back side. Each wing shows detailed carving of feathers and is set into a silver base which is open across the bottom of the wings and is angled along the side and across the top of the wings. The artist also runs twisted wire across the top of the wings. the wings are attached to the body using pin set hinges which allows the wings to move a complete 180 degrees. The artist has attached twisted wire half hoops to the wing tips on the back side which allows for the beaded chains to be attached.

The complete necklace measures 27 1/4” long end to end with each chain measuring 11 1/2” and the eagle measuring 2 1/2” tall by 4 1/2” across the wingspan. The wearable length is 14 1/2” measured from clasp down to tip of eagle’s tail. The necklace consists of sixteen (16) 8mm round seamed beads, sixteen (16) 15mm by 6mm seamed melon beads, and thirty (30) 6mm seamed round beads all balanced and equally mixed strung on silver link chains with a shepherds hook and eye clasp. It weighs 66 grams (2.32 oz or 2.12 ozt) and is hallmarked JR - HANDCRAFTED by the artist. I attribute the magnificent piece to award winning Kewa artist Joe Reano. Guaranteed sterling silver beads and eagle backing. I’ve only seen two made similar to this as for size and detail with neither having a beaded chain. They both are listed on the internet for well over $2100 with one listed around $4500? Our price $1489.95
