Overlay Flute Player PendantVernon Jojola
You can usually expect different versions of his famous swirling feather pattern, but this time this mega-gifted jeweler from Isleta Pueblo has given us something different to drool over!
Vernon is known for his detailed overlay work, including symbolism from his Pueblo and precision cuts and polishing.
In this handsome pendant, he’s gone above and beyond, showcasing two flute players and additional symbolism, including kiva steps.
The prayers and music are for the people of the Pueblo, depicted below each flute player.
The round pendant is lightly domed, making the cutout figures and symbols appear more prominently.
Scrupulously fabricated by hand, the detail and clean construction are obviously the work of a master of his craft!
