Zuni flower burst squash blossom necklace with sleeping beauty turquoise. Zuni flower burst squash blossom necklace with sleeping beauty turquoise and matching pair of earrings. I always have my eye open for different designs in squash blossom necklaces. This piece caught my eye with it’s light and airy naja and the different treatment given the blossoms. They look like a flower bursting open with it’s petals (at least to me). There is a lot of work gone into the making of this piece, which puzzles me that it is not signed. Each blossom has been hand cut out of silver backing plate and the Naja is one solid cut piece. This would have to be done with a jewelers saw and then smoothed over with the bezels and wires mounted to it. The two types of turquoise cabs include petit point and needle point and are made from light blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise, not plastic or “block”. At it’s widest point. The necklace is made from 8 mm beads and is strung on sturdy foxtail chain with a total length of 29 not including the Naja. Total weight is 199.3 g or 7.03 oz. Earrings 8.1 g. Necklace is not hallmarked but everything tests as silver. See my other listings. For more great items! Light and airy design. Four identical blossom each side. Naja contains three “flowers”. One petit point cab is cracked but secure in bezel. Matching style for earrings. All hand cut out work on back of Naja. Each blossom cut by hand. Hand cut then smoothed over. Slight bend in one post. Does not effect screw. Strung on foxtail chain. Hook and eye clasp. If you wish to use another method please ask first.
