Very RARE and amazing example of a bird fetish necklace handmade by Andrew Emerson Quam. Consisting of 51 PLUMP (1” – 1-1/4”) birds strung with large barrels of natural coral, this necklace looks phenomenal on. Quam died in 1976 at the young age of 33, but not before establishing a considerable legacy at Zuni Pueblo.
