This preeminent artist is known for carrying her father’s (Leo Poblano) legacy of innovation in jewelry design into two further generations – hers and her equally talented children’s. Eagerly collected all over the world, her work takes a giant leap away from traditional work by Zuni Pueblo jewelers – except for the lapidary work. Notice the finely cut, high grade, natural stones, and how carefully they are arranged.This pendant features some very traditional stones and colors, with a jolt of the contemporary. Jet, turquoise, coral, even the white ivory, all are colors found in most traditional Zuni jewelry; deep blue lapis is a contemporary accent. Traditional the materials and colors might be, but the arrangement and design are strictly abstract and up-to-the -moment. Meticulous workmanship matches the quality of the natural stones, and the design is not only striking, but witty, too. The little silver dome-lets that peek out on either side of the pendant add a lighthearted touch of bubbly whimsy that enlivens the strict angles and shapes. Even the bail, hidden from view except to the owner, is finely worked.A beautiful piece that is wonderfully wearable, by one of the most creative, top-echelon jewelers now working.
