It’s springtime and lizards are running all over the Twin Rocks porches, parking lot, and sandstone bluffs surrounding us. Ben Yazzie pays tribute to our little neighbors with this fine sterling silver pin. He cuts out the lizard body from silver sheets, then stamps and solders the pieces together. Unlike its inspiration, this lizard will stay in one place when you pin it to your clothing.
