This is a piece my dad picked up for my mom in 70’s. He spent a lot of time on Navajo reservation so likely purchased there. I don’t see a hallmark? Just the price he paid for it.
Third photo. What would be the bottom setting. Top of photo.
There appears to be some marks/lines on that. Can you see if these are just scratches or something more?
I will take a closer photo when I get home. It looked like some hammer marks on back too. If you are looking at the back, the last setting on the right has the price he paid on it. But no initials or other symbols
Looks to be a pretty typical 1970’s Navajo squash blossom. Around this time the number of squash blossoms exploded due to the increased popularity of NA jewelry. They also usually feature bench beads (as here)–machine made halves soldered together in assembly line fashion, and stabilized turquoise. I don’t believe yours is marked or hallmarked, so it will be hard to attribute it to a specific artist. Pretty necklace!
Thank you so much for your input.
Welcome to the site!! Lovely squash!
