I would appreciate it if any of the members of this group can shed any light on the possible origin of this silver clip... sorry for the bad quality of the photo....

yes, Mapuche from south America- Chile, Peru or Ecuador, etc.
Years ago i used to have a whole set including pendants, cloak pins, and chain necklaces. i finally identified them from searching through books. they are quite grand! the symbolism may include christian crosses, but on mine, like yours, the birds appeared more important.
this is a traditional pendant from Peru.
when i get to my notes i will find the name of the tribe.
