A delicate bright blue turquoise bird perches on a graceful red coral branch in this peaceful scene by Veronica Poblano. The tiny bird has blue eyes of inlaid lapis, Veronica gave it a stylized offering of inlaid lapis and coral cabochons. Bright green leaves of Orvil Jack turquoise emerge from the red branch. Orvil Jack turquoise comes from a small family mine in Lander County, Nevada, named after the family patriarch, and is fairly rare. The little song bird is about 1" long perched on the 2 1/2" long branch. Veronica attached her sterling silver signature label.
