Vintage/Antique NAVAJO Sterling Silver PEYOTE BIRD Chip Inlay SQUASH BLOSSOM
This is a very old navajo chip inlay necklace. The beads look handmade which hasn't been done since the 50s. You can see in the photos that each bead is slightly different which indicates handmade. You compare necklaces for size, wei. This one weighs a whopping. One of the other squashes. Weighs a mere 155 grams and the other one is 217 grams. Weight is an indicator of age.

The older peices generally weigh more. This one measures 34 inches long clasp to clasp. Are only 24 and 28 inches long. This necklace has handmade beads as seen in the photos no two beads are exactly alike.

This is a triple tailed. Peyote bird squash which is far more unusual and unique.

Than all the other peyote bird squashes I have seen. This squash is unique in another way. Each bird blossom has a heartline.

I have never seen another peyote bird squash blossom where each bird had a heartline. This is unusual and rainbowman jewelry in Santa Fe new mexico told me that this is a special necklace which could have been made for an elder within the tribe for extra protection from the "evil eye". Obviously the materials used are silver, turquiose and coral. I had this necklace restrung by Shalako Indian Store in santa fe, new mexico who specialize in old jewelry. E wire was failing, due to age, so.

This necklace was restrung on silver chain which is much stronger than foxtail wire. If you want it on foxtail its very inexpensive to have that done just use someone who is experienced in antique jewelry. Please give my collectors items a home.
