The Thunderbird is legendary symbol of certain North American indigenous peoples’ history and culture. It is a powerful motif that is said to represent protection and strength.
CLP’s interpretation of the thunderbird features a large, stunning yellow bronze bird with wings spread wide and strong. The thunderbird on leather bracelet is hand crafted in our studio and involves a collaboration of metal work and leather work by our lead metalsmith and beadsmith. The thunderbird is first soldered, buffed, polished, and riveted onto leather in the metalworking shop. After it has been riveted to the leather, it is then handed over to the beadsmith to be carefully hand stitched and completed with a deerskin leather tie and sterling silver slider button.
The large yellow bronze thunderbird measures approximately 2 1/2″ wide x 1 3/8″ tall and spans its wings on a 1 ½ inch wide dark brown leather cuff. The leather is soft and supple, making for a comfortable fitting statement piece.
