Vintage Native American Silver and Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace
This antique squash blossom necklace is a beautiful example of the actual Native American style. Two strands of hand made silver beads support ten squash blossom pendants, each set with a beautiful blue turquoise bead. The main pendant, the typical horseshoe shaped turquoise and silver Naja, is composed of seven pieces of turquoise bezel set in a silver leaf setting.
NOTE: The name "VAN JOHNSON" is faintly scrawled into the back of one of the individual pieces of the main pendant. It appears to be a rough hand engraving that resembles a mark of ownership rather than a maker's mark.
