Daniel Chattin and Jovanna Poblano

Daniel Chattin and Jovanna Poblano, their jewelry is the highest quality.

Daniel Chattin carves the fetishes… the designs are a Chattin Poblano collaboration.

Daniel learned from the Quandelacy family, in particular Stuart, Sandra and Faye.

However, there is a quality… a feeling to Daniel’s work that make them his own.

Beyond simply knowing how to carve stone on a grinding wheel, some Zuni carvers
turn craft into art. A true Zuni artist can see inside the stone… see what does
not appear on the surface… see what is under the stone’s surface.

Or, then again, maybe a Zuni can will the stone to the patterns and color he wishes.

Jovanna Poblano, Daniel’s wife, also designs and strings the necklaces.
She has a wonderful sense of fashion and her combinations of color is unsurpassed.
Veronica Poblano, Jovanna’s mother, is a famous Zuni jeweler in her own right.

Leo Poblano, Veronica’s father, was a Zuni Innovator. He was an early Zuni
stone carver / silversmith master. His work was highly regarded by CG Wallace.
Collector’s today eagerly greet Leo Poblano finds.

Daniel Chattin and Jovanna Poblano Zuni Fetish Necklace

It is very unusual for Daniel to carve just a Maiden’s face.
However, upon examining this extraordinary Laboradorite
gemstone it seems to me that this carving could have
been no other way.

The Laboradorite fires is if it were high quality Opal. No
matter how you turn the Laboradorite gemstone and
no matter the light, Maidens faces just glows. It is
as if we can see past her face and
into her thoughts.

Of all the stones used in Zuni, Laboradorite is among the
most difficult to carve. It is extremely hard and must
be cut perfectly to catch the fire (and rarely is
there as much fire present as we see here).

Every time you look at this Maidens face she presents
another look… another image full of color.
It is quite rare, there will never be
another like it.

18″ Handmade Necklace of finest Ox Blood
Red Coral with two natural Persian
Turquoise gemstones.

The center Laboradorite gem is
2 3/4″ x 1 7/8″

$2925
