Squash Blossom + Stone Necklace
A traditional squash blossom, formed from fine silver, shines among semiprecious stones: turquoise, tiger eye, and green aventurine.
This unique and beautiful adornment was created by my incredibly talented neighbor, Fred, a silversmith working in traditional Navajo technique. The squash blossom pendant mimics traditional Navajo silverwork (Fred's traditional work is often assumed to be original old pawn vintage by collectors and dealers), and was created entirely by Fred with anvil, press, hammer, and fire.
Squash blossom measures 1.25 inches tall. Necklace measures 18 inches long in total, and stone section measures 9 inches. Finished with vintage chain and sterling silver accents and clasp.
Handmade with love in Wyoming.
