Inlaid Mickey Mouse Ring
The matriarch of the Poblano/Chattin family of extraordinary artists, and the second generation of celebrated jewelers, Veronica absorbed impeccable technique and an innovative spirit from her father, the late Leo Poblano, who is credited with creating modern Zuni jewelry.
Highly regarded – nationally and internationally – and included in museum and individual collections, and reference books, Veronica’s work is on the cutting edge of contemporary.
Who says high-quality artistry can’t be fun, too?!
Here is a ring that impishly uses traditional Zuni materials – natural jet, mother of pearl, red coral, and blue turquoise – traditional Zuni inlay, and fabricates a totally untraditional ring.
With impeccable lapidary work and beautifully finished silver, this famous artist brings us…Mickey Mouse!
A real collector’s piece, this perfectly fabricated ring is both adorable and admirable.
The subject and the way the artist has captured the innocent joy of our favorite mouse makes us smile. (Who couldn’t use a smile today?)
Coupled with that delightful smile, Mickey is inlaid with precision and expertise.
Instead of a static, head-on pose, Veronica placed him looking up and to the right, so there is a dynamic energy to the ring.
Colorful, true to the subject, and made with fine natural materials, practiced skill, and an irreverent sense of humor, this Mickey Mouse ring will break the ice everywhere in the world.
Moreover, it is a serious collector’s item that will grace a museum, one day.
