Product Description:

Navajo artist Kevin Billah handmade the beautiful Turquoise Cross Squash Blossom Necklace.  The Necklace has 9 Crosses all handmade, stamped and set with Natural Turquoise.  The crosses where linked on a handmade chain and polished with a old style Satin Finish.  Kevin made matching earrings to go with the Necklace which are included.  Both the Necklace and earrings are hallmarked and Stamped with a Sterling Silver stamp.

The squash blossom holds significant meaning to the Native American's.  It dates back to the early 1800's where the crescent pendant was used by the Shawnee, Delaware, Cheyenne, Comanche and Navajo tribes.  The traditional Squash Blossom displays the Naja which is known to ward off evil.  It was first used on the headstalls.  The Naja was placed front and center between the horses eyes and then later on was used as Neckwear.
