Nice vintage Navajo 15pc turquoise sandcast Fleur De Lis squashblossom necklace. Estimating 1970's era, the silversmith has created twelve (12) Fleur De Lis flower sandcast blossoms, a sandcast naja with Fleur De Lis symbol from molten silver casts and attached double strand guides to the back side of each. The artist mounted a total of fifteen (15) cut and polished blue turquoise nuggets with brown and dark brown matrix (one (1) each to the blossoms and three (3) to the naja) setting each stone into hand cut saw tooth bezels. The artist also created and used one hundred ninety eight (198) small 5-6mm seamed sterling beads to complete the necklace. All strung onto foxtail chain with 1/2" long sterling cones and sterling hook-n-eye clasp at the ends.

The necklace measures 26" long end to end with a wearable length of 15" measured from clasp to end tip of naja. Each sandcast blossom measures 1 1/8" by 1/2" across with the naja measuring 2 1/2" by 2 1/4" across. The necklace weighs 93.1 grams (3.28 oz or 2.99 ozt) and is unsigned sterling silver.  $749.95
