The tiny necklace matches the tiny turquoise earrings that adorn the doll with the wide eyes and the traditional Navajo-inspired outfit.
The doll was created by full-time Navajo artist Barbara Morgan and can be seen at the 4 Native Visions gallery opening Friday at 5 p.m., at the Farmington Chamber of Commerce.
Other artists in the gallery include Gloria Emerson, James King and Gilmore Scott.
