Thunderbird Beaded Fringe Earrings
These Native American beaded earrings feature a depiction of the sacred Thunderbird. The exact meaning of the Thunderbird varies from tribe to tribe, but in essence it is a symbol of strength and courage. The earrings are 7/8"
wide and 3 3/8" long including the earhook. The earhooks are silver-filled*. Many other color combinations available.
The silver-filled items I use are made by bonding a thick durable outer layer of .925 sterling silver to a copper-alloy core. It is completed with an anti-tarnish coating to preserve the beauty. I use these to keep items affordable without sacrificing quality. Silver-filled items handle like sterling silver and should not be confused with silver plated items, which has an extremely thin layer of silver coating and is prone to chipping or flaking.
