Don't miss out on the opportunity to own this gorgeous Zuni handcrafted sterling silver turquoise needlepoint squash blossom necklace and earring set. Handmade by Zuni silversmith and lapidarist Eva L. Wyaco.
The necklace has 12 squash blossoms (6 on each side) set with tiny Sleeping Beauty needle points and an intricate naja at the center. The necklace measures about 22 inches from end to end and hangs about 12 from the back of the neck to the bottom of the naja. The Naja measures 1-1/8 inches tall by 1-3/4 inches wide. The squash blossoms measure about 1-1/4 inch long and are each set with 6 tiny turquoise needlepoints.
The matching turquoise blossom earrings measure about 1-1/4 inch long, not including the french hooks. They are for pierced ears, although I could change them to screwbacks if you prefer.
This fantastic necklace set is a never worn, high quality, Zuni created squash blossom necklace in perfect condition. One of our customers purchased this for his daughter as a gift, but the necklace was not her style, so she returned it after not wearing it. We cleaned it since it had been sitting in the box for a while. We are offering it at this reduced rate, since it was made over a year ago, but it is like new! Imagine the amount of work that went into creating this masterpiece! A Certificate of Authenticity will be included. Hallmarked by the artist, Eva L. Wyaco.
