Handmade with exceptional artistry, this Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Bib Necklace on Leather Cords was created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz. A turkey track—one of Virgil Ortiz’s signature motifs—accents a stunning bib of hand-hammered silver. The clever design of the turkey track adorning this Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Bib Necklace on Leather Cords makes it impossible to tell the front of the foot from the back—implying “no one can track your next move.” Turkey track motifs from old regalia have come to symbolize good luck. Sterling silver bib, turkey track, and lobster clasp. Genuine Leather cords. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
This magnificent Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Bib Necklace on Leather Cords reflects the intensely graphic designs of all of Ortiz’s creations—pottery, fashion, carpets, murals, and now jewelry. Informed by traditional Cochiti motifs—especially as expressed in the pottery of his grandmother and mother who taught him their craft—the designs of Ortiz’s handmade jewelry are adaptations of Cochiti artistic techniques and traditions, which it his mission to help preserve. The work of Ortiz was featured at the Smithsonian in the exhibition Virgil Ortiz: La Renaissance Indigène at our National Museum of the American Indian-New York, The George Gustav Heye Center.
