Two twisted wires and a half-round silver circle separate the two partial circles of turquoise, and a single twisted wire separates the circles from the row of stones on top of the naja. All cabochons (pendant + necklace) are set in serrated bezels, and have a single silver raindrop in between them. The 5/1 bench-made bead necklace is adorned by 10 beautiful squash blossoms with a 13 turquoise-cluster set in each blossom. The necklace has a shorter second layer of silver beads that helps secure the blossoms. This magnificent piece weighs approximately 196.5 grams!!The necklace is about 33" long from hook to eye, and the pendant is just shy of 3 5/16" in height by 2 7/8 wide. The blossoms are all the same size, roughly 2 1/18" tall by 1 3/8"wide. Note: A few of the smaller stones have partial hairlines; they are virtually unnoticeable when worn because of the busy matrix.
All stones remain secure in their bezels. Thank you for supporting authentic Native American art.
