This brilliant Purple turquoise parrot is lovingly hand-carved by Matthew and Stephanie Mitchell in NM. This parrot sits atop a round piece of green turquoise and is accented with malachite, turquoise, purple turquoise, austrian crystal and spiral beads. The Bird on top of the World pendant is strung on an adjustable 15-17 inch cotton cord. The pendant itself (including the bail) measures 4 inches long. It has a large bail which makes the pendant flexible if you also want to wear it on beads or stones as large as 8-9mm.
I used a lot of green in this design to symbolize the lush natural habitats of parrots.
Bird (or Animal) on top of the World Pendant:
I design my Bird (or Animals) on Top of the World pendants using stone animal fetishes hand-carved by my dear friends Stephanie and Matthew Mitchell who have been carving stones for over 40 years in NM. Each bird or animal sits atop a stone and my designs typically incorporate other stones, crystals, and metal in the designs, all striving to bring out the beauty of the unique hand carved bird or animal.
The idea is that when you wear your Bird or Animal on Top of the World pendant- hopefully you too- will feel like a Bird or an Animal on top of the world! Enjoy!
