I hope you enjoy this beautifully decorated Blue Bird Talavera Necklace! It makes a perfect gift for your friends family or a nice gift for yourself. 1 ½” x 1 ½” Talavera pottery square tile with a blue bird standing on grass with rose and blue flowers on a bed of gray.
I added a pair of blue bead earrings from the 1950s, a peewee cateye marble, brown moonglow Lucite beads, little silver flowers with blue rhinestone centers. There is a three-bead dangle on one the side. Silver caviar paste adds strength to the construction as well as enhancing the beauty. In addition, the centerpiece measures 3” x 2 3/8”; it adjusts in length from 14 ½” to 16 ½” with a lobster clip clasp.
Talavera pottery is a Mexican and Spanish pottery tradition. Named after the Spanish Talavera de la Reina pottery from Talavera de la Reina, in Spain. Talavera pottery is mostly used to make functional items. These include items such as plates, bowls, jars, flowerpots, sinks, religious items and decorative figures. However, a significant use of the ceramic is for tiles. These tiles decorate both the inside and outside of buildings in Mexico, especially in the city of Puebla. (Source)
