Handmade Zuni Sterling Silver Petit Point Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace | J For Sale
for sale is a stunning Zuni sterling silver petit point turquoise squash blossom necklace handmade by Native American silversmiths Maryann and Felix Chavez. A fine example of Zunilapidary work and Native American craftsmanship.
A double row of silver beads holds each decorative squash blossom firmly in place.
