Lee Sands made a series of inlaid Lucite necklaces back in the 1970s. This vintage owl inlaid necklace by Lee Sands is one of his rarer ones.

The thick laminated owl includes mother of pearl and apple coral combined with the black Lucite resin. The owl pendant measures 2 5/8 inches across by 3 1/4 inches high. It's 3/8 inch thick.

The owl is suspended from a chain of genuine apple coral and black coral beads. The necklace measures 23 inches around. The beaded chain is about 1/2 inch wide. The closure is a simple hook and eye.

Lee Sands pieces are mostly unsigned but are featured in several books including Unsigned Beauties (page 179), Twentieth Century Plastic Jewelry, and Rhinestone Jewelry, and Figurals Animals & Whimsicals' by Marcia "Sparkles" Brown (page 213).

Sands started his business in Hawaii using natural materials, gemstones and shells and was the first to introduce this high quality inlay technique to the Philippines where all the inlay work was done. Sands retired and sold off all his materials in 2013. No more of Sands whimsical bold animal necklaces will ever be made so if you give a hoot about owls, this is your chance to own it.
