1940’S NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN MADE SQUASH BLOSSOM STERLING TURQUOISE NECKLACE

Squash Blossom

Squash Blossom

This beautiful hand crafted 1940’s sterling turquoise Native American made Navajo Indian made 26” necklace. Most jewelry made was masterfully made and skills past down through generations.  One of the most important forms of Navajo and Southwestern Native American jewelry, is the Squash Blossom Necklace. Most are made of a string of plain round silver beads, interspersed with more stylized “squash blossoms”, and feature a pendant, or “naja”, hung from the center of the strand. The squash blossom beads are copied from the buttons which held together the pants worn by the Spanish, and later, Mexican caballeros. These buttons represent – and are modeled after – pomegranates

1800’s ORIGINAL INDIAN PIPE AXE TOMAHAWK

Smoking!!!

Smoking!!!

Original metal wood pipe axe tomahawk. It measures 17 ¾” and the axe is 7” with tip broken. When Europeans arrived in North America, they introduced the metal blade to the natives, which improved their lifestyle. It was easier for the Native Americans to hunt since these blades did not break as easily as stone. With the introduction of metal blades, the Native Americans created a tomahawk’s poll, which is the side opposite the blade, which consisted of a hammer, spike or a pipe. These became known as pipe tomahawks, which consisted of a bowl on the poll and a hollowed out shaft. These were created by European and American artisans for trade and diplomatic gifts for the tribes
