Santo Domingo Depression necklace and earring Thunderbird set, ca. 1935
Santo Domingo Depression necklace with a mosaic Thunderbird pendant and five mosaic squashes on each side. Necklace was made around 1935 from red and yellow bakelite, turquoise, found materials (radio or batteries), and gypsum beads. Comes with a set of matching mosaic earrings. The necklace measures 22" long, has a spring clasp, and the thunderbird pendant is almost 2" long. The earrings dangle almost 2" long. The unusual thing about this necklace is the yellow bakelite.
