The Back Story

Known for distinctive designs and incredible craftsmanship,  Native American artwork is said to reflect the inner being of the creator. Historically, Indian spirituality was communicated through dance, music, and sacred imagery. Today, some researchers contend the same spirituality is also communicated through the designs of Native American artists.

The Squash Blossom Necklace is a crescent-shaped pendant, originally brought to the Americas by Spanish conquistadors. Thought to be a popular trading item, the Squash Blossom necklace quickly became a status symbol among Native American Indians was proudly worn during ceremonies.

The Squash Blossom design has evolved over time. In the early days it consistent of a thong and simple beads. Later, more complicated beads, silver, turquoise, and even money pieces were incorporated.
