Paula says - "The reason we call a necklace like this "squash blossom style" is because it is constructed like a squash blossom necklace as far as the silver beads and length but is made without squash blossoms.

"This 180 gram necklace and clip earring set is made from 8mm hand made beads strung on chain and inlay of turquoise, mother of pearl, abalone and either coral or red abalone. It is not signed but it shows all the design and workmanship characteristics of being Zuni made.

"We are selling it as-is, an unsigned beautiful piece of wearable or collectible art.

"There is a hummingbird on page 80 of Figural Designs in Zuni Jewelry by Toshio Sei that looks identical in style to the side hummers of this necklace. - that piece is attributed to Blake and Velma Lesansee. Other than that I have not seen a necklace like this one. There are some similarities to work by Corrine and Bobby Shack and Howard Esalio but at this point I would like to hear what you think ! Thank you in advance for information . . ."

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts

Native American Jewelry blog tips and informationWe are in the vintage Native American jewelry rescue business and are passionate about finding new homes for used and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.

Often people contact us after taking a box of Native American jewelry to their local pawn shop and find that a pawn shop is mainly interested in melt value of the metals and not in preserving the beautiful historic pieces. To hear that people have considered selling these treasures for melt value makes us truly sad.

Melt value is usually far below what we would offer for the jewelry. Yet we can't pay retail price for items because of the time and cost involved in finding new homes for them. We have to research, often repair and restore the jewelry, photograph and list each item on our website, and sometimes hold pieces in inventory for years until the right buyer comes along.

We hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
