This is a silver roadrunner charm. The roadrunner is the state bird of New Mexico, land of the open road. This is the quintessential keepsake for the footloose traveler in your life. In fact, it would do nicely for a merry trickster as well… Meep meep!
This is a true vintage charm from the 1970s. At the time, there was a surge of interest in Indigenous American tribal culture. The rich tapestry of mythic images joined a wave of 70’s pop art that seemed to reach… everywhere. The style and weight of this cast silver alloy charm is unmistakable to anyone who grew up in that time.
This silver roadrunner charm measures approximately 1 inch from beak to tail feathers, and weighs 1.5 grams. As mentioned, this is a silver alloy, set with art glass in turquoise blue. A stainless steel jump ring will be included with your charm. If you prefer a sterling silver jump ring, I can include that too. Just let me know during checkout. This piece was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our unique 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. Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to check out the many treasured Indigenous motifs available in my shop! Purchases from the WhyteWing website benefit The Trevor Project, but if you are more comfortable shopping through a platform like Etsy, this roadrunner charm is listed there as well.
