Description: This signed 1976 Zuni Veronica Nastacio Mickey Mouse Ring measures 2-1/4" x 1" and is a size 6. The daughter of Leo Poblano and Ida Vacit Poblano, Veronica Poblano has become recognized as a top-notch contemporary jeweler. While she draws on Zuni silverworking and lapidary forms and techniques, her work is characterized by a high degree of innovation and individual creative license, making it a fertile hybrid of the contemporary and the traditional. Poblano learned from her mother and father, as well as Edward and Madeline Beyuka, who lived next door to her when she was a child. She credits the Beyukas, in particular, for inspiring her to work in silver. Veronica achieved notoriety at a young age in the early 1970s for her use of Mickey Mouse images on pins, bracelets, rings and necklaces. At that time, she worked with husband Amelio Nastacio, and they signed their work AMELIO & VERONICA NASTACIO, ZUNI (year).
