Zuni Turquoise Native American Silver Necklace

Home

The Zuni Indians made the most wonderful smaller in size squash blossom necklaces and this handmade treasure is a unique snake eye turquoise example. The blossoms are hand formed with decorated cone shapes, a drape shaped bottom, and stones decorate all the way around the bottom of the blossom. The flowers are beautifully done on the chain and the chain with flower is 1.25in. wide. The Naja that wards off evil spirits is turquoise studded, 2.25in. tall, 1 7/8in. wide and again a dangle of a matching blossom. The necklace is a 19in. wearable length. This is a most wearable piece as most squash blossoms are so HUGE they are just not practical for everyday wear. The beads are masterfully made with great attention paid and the weight is a considerable 104 grams heavy. The piece is unsigned but the style is distinctive and can be contributed to Bernard Bowekaty as documented in turquoise Zuni Book Volume 2. Exceptional in every detail, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
