Though this piece dates all the way back to the 80’s it hasn’t lost one ounce of beauty. This statement squash blossom necklace, crafted by Jerry Roan, is a large-scale vintage creation featuring 10 squashes centered by turquoise cabochons that feature golden caramel deposits placed on a double strand of sterling silver pearls. Each one is framed with a sterling silver shadow box detailed with simple and repetitive stampwork. The substantial naja has seven stones in similar settings affixed to the split-bar band. Exquisite and timeless on a double strand of benchmade sterling silver desert pearls.
Jerry Roan (Navajo). Shadow box; set stones. Stick man figures; buckles, crosses; letter openers.
Marks: J R; J R (conjoined, and a stick figure)
Jerry Roan’s early work is marked by a broken arrow pictorial as listed in Barton Wright’s Hallmarks of the Southwest. He later changed his hallmark to his initials and a stick figure.
