Necklace- Hand Crafted Sterling Etched Tubular Squash Blossom

Crafted in the Southwest exclusively for DIXON RAND. Each pendant has been hand fabricated using sterling silver, of which each component is hand sawed, filed, oxidized and polished to bring out the details. The bail accommodates a wide range of chains if you wish to remove it from the 26" deerskin leather that it is shipped with.

The symbol of the squash blossom has a long and rich history, and has been found on ancient petroglyph sites in Arizona and around the Southwest. It is believed that the flower symbol was translated into silver adornments by the Navajo around the late 1800's to early 1900's, and is represented with long petals beginning to open and a sphere attached at the base of the flower. In the Americas, Spanish colonial gentlemen wore variations of these pomegranate flower blossoms on their shirts, capes and trousers as silver adornments.
