This is a simply wonderful heavy old hand hammered coin silver or better squash blossom Old Pawn Necklace. This powerful and substantial piece was probably not made to satisfy the tourist of the day, but made to be worn by the Navajo themselves.The weight is an impressive, almost 400 grams! I have never and I have searched through thosands of squash blossom necklaces. If you can find one as heavy let me know. Maybe if you take the time to go visit with the Native populations or scour the pawnshops of the Southwest you might find something equal? The bench beads are obviously tediously hand hammered.
The bench beads being double in weight and size than is the standard for these Squash Blossom necklaces. Thank you for your interest. The 1/2 inch bench beads, end to end, are 30 inches.
The naja extends an additional 3 inches. The necklace can easily be shortened or lengthened by shortening the foxtail chain or by restringing on a longer Foxtail chain.
