Greetings and Thank You for taking the time to read this and hopefully view and identify the maker of this beautiful squash blossom necklace that was supposedly purchased at the Sandia Indian Reservation some 25 – 30 years ago.
However, the design appears to me to be of an older period when the squash blossoms resembled a winged insect while encasing the stone at the bottom. We have a modest collection now but this particular item caught my wife’s eye because of the unique pendant design and the whole necklace in general and has now made it into collection but before we pass it down to our granddaughter, who is not of the Pueblo’s but is still very much a part of the Navaho people even at 5 months old. She already has the power to pull the sun through my storm clouds….. anyway.. sorry..lol.. I want to do my diligence and get an expert eye to make sure she is getting something worth passing down to her grandchildren.. I believe the necklace to be authentic age but really seems to be of an older period. Anything you can tell us would be greatly appreciated. Again, Thank You for your time.. William
