Up 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. Each "blossom" and the central naja are inlaid with natural turquoise stones, carefully hand cut to form tear drops and little rounds.This is a very traditional Zuni design; beautifully wrought, comfortable to wear, delightfully decorative.In the close-up photos, you will notice a variation in color among some of the stones; this indicates a natural difference in hardness, and only adds to the charm. Over time, the turquoise stones that are less hard will gradually change to a slightly different hue, owing to handling, the particles in the air, etc.

The necklace measures 24 1/2" long, has a 14" hang length and weighs is 129.6g. The Naja measures3 1/8" long and 2-7/8" wide, squash blossoms measure1 1/2" long and 11/16" wide. The necklace isstrung on silver chain with a hook and eye clasp. The back of the naja is stamped with the maker's hallmark.

The necklace has been tested and examined for purity and is sterling silver. The necklace pictured is the one you will receive. Thank you for looking!
