Is this fake? Carlene Leekity

I recently inherited some native american jewelry, some old, some new- this is one of the newer pieces and I can’t find anything like it online. It’s signed Carlene Leekity, and dated 6/30/01. It looks like the style of other necklaces of hers, but these birds look like vultures or buzzards. Any idea if this is real, or what type of birds they are? Any help is appreciated, as I’m not familiar with this jewelry.

Yes it looks authentic. It appears the bird is an eagle. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you! I hadn’t thought of an eagle. I can’t find anything like it on Google. I’d love to know more about it.

This is fake. but this is her work. someone must have copied her work. because her eagles are not shaped widely like this.
