This classic Zuni squash blossom necklace features inlaid jet, turquoise, coral, mother of pearl and tortoise shell in Sunface designs. The pieces are all strung on two strands of hand made sterling silver beads on chain. There are no artist markings, but it appears to be the work of Zuni artist Marietta Soseeah. The use of tortoise shell indicates it was made prior to the early 1970s when its use was banned. It has not been recently cleaned.
Size: Necklace is 26" in Total Length. Center pendant (naja) is 2 7/8" Tall, 2 3/8" Wide.
