Yes, Turquoise & Tufa is a Native American jewelry boutique, and this little Navajo weaving by Pamela Brown makes a perfect display for your jewelry. 

Pamela Brown is a master weaver, who specializes in Toadlena/Two Grey Hills pieces. Her handwoven art is part stream of consciousness and part comic book usually infused with lots of humor. Her weavings provide little vignettes of her life on the Navajo Nation.

This natural wool weaving is entitled "Lost Ball" and gives us a snapshot of the day Pamela tried to reach a ball that had fallen behind her dresser. Instead of grabbing the ball, Pamela herself fell behind the dresser and got stuck. She cried for help as her sister laughed hysterically in the background.

"Lost Ball" was originally purchased by Martha Struever at the historic Toadlena Trading Post and Museum. Marti fell in love with Pamela Brown's unusual style of weaving, steeped in the traditional but contemporary in its style of storytelling.

The weaving measures just 6" x 14" and comes with its original Toadlena tag attached. If you watch this video from Voice of America, you'll see Toadlena Trading Post and Pamela Brown.
