-Handmade, hand painted, and one of a kind.
-Please message us for special quantity pricing for orders over 10 pieces.
-You will receive one piece of our choosing unless you ask for a specific bird type that you see in the photos. Most are of the black bird type. All are metal backed, likely aluminum. Size is about 1.25 inch (3.2 cm) long X 0.75 inch (1.9 cm) wide.
-Made of abalone shell and enamel and possibly stone on some. Previous buyers have used them for necklaces, rings, earrings, and other mixed media art pieces. Light weight enough to be comfortable on any jewelry item.
-Never used or worn (dead stock) and kept in storage for over 40 years. Part of a family jewelry shop in San Diego that closed its doors in the 1970s, similar to most of the jewelry we sell.
