This piece is from my personal collection accumulated over many years. The necklace was created in the 1970s and was given to me by someone who told me it was made by a Navajo artisan named Otero of Cuba NM. It is tarnished and I can't make out a signature so I don't know if there is one.
The turquoise is a vibrant blue with some black matrix as shown and the stones are excellently matched. The piece is in excellent vintage condition, with some patina as shown. The necklace weighs about 100 grams. The Navajo pearls used in the necklace are about 6 mm. The Naja is about 2.5" wide and the blossoms are about 1-1/4" long each.It is about 25-/12 long. Naja and blossoms are heavily made. We guarantee it to be sterling and natural turquoise. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Cultures & Ethnicities\Native American: US\1935-Now\Jewelry".
