This gorgeous white jasper hand carved raven by Matthew and Stephanie Mitchell in NM sits atop a large piece of black onyx. My bird on top of the world design is accented with apple coral, turquoise and spiral beads. The pendant is strung on an adjustable 15-17 inch cotton cord. The pendant itself (including the bail) measures a little over 4 inches long. It has a large bail which makes the pendant flexible if you also want to sometimes wear it on beads or stones as large as 8-9mm.
Your pendant can be worn alone or combined with a 9 bird/animal fetish necklace and/or with matching earrings.
White Ravens exist beyond the many myths and legends worldwide where the raven initially starts out as white and later through a series of primordial tasks changes color and its bird song to black and croaking. Brilliant, as other corvids, white ravens have been photographed in the wild. They are not true albinos, but have another condition that only affects the color of their feathers. They have pink legs instead of black.

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!
