Native American Squash Blossoms is a term which has long been applied to this unique, handmade necklace produced by Southwestern Indians. It was first made by the Navajo and later adopted by the Zuni and Hopi Indians, who added their cultural creativity to the original. Although the Navajo are the best known creators of this spectacular Native American Squash Blossoms, the Hopis and Zuni have also added and substituted other types of design for the Squash Blossom so that their distinct tribal styles, such as Inlaid figures, have evolved. The Navajo Silversmith has maintained a purity of representation combining beautiful Turquoise, Royston and Sleeping Beauty among many others, with masterful Silverwork. Navajo craftsmen skills showcase the Naja, the central crescent shape pendant that symbolizes the ability to ward off evil spirits. Early photographs, dated about 1890, show the Native American Squash Blossoms worn by Navajos. An outstanding American Indian Necklace bar none!
