Show 710

Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona

710-1 Turquoise Jewelry - Arizona and New Mexico supply turquoise. This ornamental gemstone is often used in Native American and Southwest designs combined with silver. Colors range from green blue to sky blue. Working turquoise mines are in New Mexico.

710-2 Cowgirl and cowboys - A true cowboys job was to take care of cattle. Hi uniform was: a big hat for shade and protection from rain, a bandanna to protect his neck from sunburn, or over his mouth and nose to keep out dirt, and pointed toe boots to slip easily into the stirrup and high heels to keep his feet from slipping out, chaps or leggings to keep him warm and spurs on his heels to make the horse move.

710-3 Friendship Necklace – The Texas motto is friendship. A necklace, which can be cut in half and shared by two friends, illustrates this motto.

Itty Bitty Red Hand 710-4 Lizard – Lizards are reptiles in the same category as snakes. Most reptiles have 4 legs and 5 toes on each. They have scaly skin; most have mottled color and are carnivores. The Gila Monster is notorious in New Mexico for its venomous bite and large head.

710-5 South West Clay Pot – Anasazi people lived in homes that clung to canyon walls or perched on flat top hills. They worked with stone, plaster and sun dried brick. They created richly painted pottery with intricate animal and geometric designs.
