I found these on Ebay. The seller said that these are vintage Northwest Coast Native American, hand carved bird totems.......... I know that they are mother of pearl, and they are NWC style. I'm not sure if these are really traditional or just "tourist trade" earrings. I love them just the same. I plan on taking the earring findings off and making my own style of earring from them. I love when I find interesting and unusual things on ebay.
