Necklace, Leather Thong, Giant Blossom, Turquoise, Jock Favour, 1141
A CHIC STRAP NECKLACE IS A SOUTHWESTERN STAPLE.
Crafted by Jock Favour, this unique necklace features a small squash blossom made from silver ingot and adorned with a heavily matrixed turquoise petit point cabochon set in a serrated bezel and framed with scalloped silver with stamping. The blossom is affixed to a deerskin thong cord with silver bead adjusters. It’s a great piece for layering, but you can also wear it solo for a subtle pop of southwestern style.
Jock is an archaeologist so all of his work replicates the style as well as the process of early Navajo work. He uses all natural stones that he mines and sets in the traditional manner.
