Traditional Native American clothing varied widely from tribe to tribe, but one nearly universal element was the moccasin, a sturdy slipper-shaped type of shoe sewn from tanned leather. This silver moccasin charm is embellished with turquoise art glass.
This is a true vintage charm from the 1970s. There was a surge of interest in Native American tribal culture and the mythic images joined a wave of 70’s pop art that seemed to reach… everywhere. The style and weight of this cast silver alloy is unmistakable to anyone who grew up with it.
This silver moccasin charm measures approximately .75 inch long and weighs 1.5 grams. As mentioned, this is a silver alloy, set with durable polymer in turquoise blue. The jump ring provided is sterling silver and can be soldered closed by your jeweler when you add it to your bracelet. This piece was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
Please take your time with the photos and consider them part of the description. Charms are properly installed when the jump ring is soldered closed.
