Dry Creek Turquoise

 One of the lightest blue turquoise available - this stone has just a tiny trace of pigment in it, graced with beautiful light brown, golden brown, or orange matrix. This turquoise comes from a small turquoise mine outside of Austin, Nevada. Because of the stones lightness in color and hardness in strength, it is a very valuable turquoise.


 

Squash Blossom History

The origins of this uniquely southwestern style are as fascinating and diverse as the southwest itself, and can be attributed to the intermingling of cultures in the area during the 1860s and 1870s.  Navajo artisans learned silversmithing from Hispanic artists in New Mexico, as well as Plains Indians craftsmen. The creativity and innovation of those early Navajo silversmiths soon lent itself to many forms and styles of jewelry - one of which was the squash blossom necklace. 

Originally, artists melted down Mexican pesos, US dollars, and any other type of silver they could find to create their works of art.  By the 1890s, turquoise was a common addition to these pieces as well. As the style spread to many of the tribes in the area in the late 19th century, the Zuni craftspeople added their unique flair: the familiar turquoise inlay patterns we see today. 

Although today squash blossom necklaces include much variation that is limited only by the imaginations of their designers, the pieces each follow the same basic form: an inverted  crescent, or Naja, centerpiece, surrounded on each side by an average of 6 smaller flower blossom pieces. 

All at once, squash blossom necklaces are an investment in fine art, a piece of American history, and a talisman full of meaning and purpose. For many Native American jewelry collectors, a southwestern wardrobe is incomplete without a squash blossom necklace. Although they are extremely beautiful, their beauty goes beyond simple aesthetics to hold something of the refined glimmer and history of the Southwest itself.
