Quetzalcoatl was a Mayan deity whose name means "feathered serpent." Becky was inspired by Mayan history and culture when she created this necklace. Soutache creates the perfect serpentine shapes in her design and the dagger beads add a feathered quality. The bright colors of the focal create a tropical contrast to the elegant black beads and gold chain of the necklace.
