Fresh variscite beads are strung along with a pleasing bird carved from Kingman turquoise by Jovanna Poblano. This remarkable and reversible necklace is about 24" long. The feathered friend, with sweet eyes of turquoise, is about 1 1/2" long, 1" tall and 1/2" wide. The loops below the bird are about 3 3/4" long.
Jovanna's family artistry began with Teddy Weahkee (d) who was a major carver known for his traditional fetishes and inlaid jewelry, among other wonderful works. Her grandfather was noted carver Leo Poblano (d).
