Created with Native American symbols, this phoenix charm or pendant will serve well as your spirit bird or another special keepsake project.
The phoenix is symbolic in many of the indigenous American peoples' cultures and other ancient beliefs. S/he represents courage, long life and renewal (rebirth), and transformation. Well known as rising from the ashes created by the sun, the phoenix has often become a prized spirit bird token.
Our charm/pendant measures 1-1/8 inch high (including the bail/hanging hole) by 1 inch at the widest (its wings). The back of the piece is marked 925 (sterling). You will notice that its right wing tip is slightly turned outward as designed by the artist. The oxidation was also part of this fabulous design.
This is a vintage phoenix totem purchased directly from the artist in an Indian market in the American west.
