Iconic squash blossom necklaces are prized by Native men and women.
They are admired by non-Natives, too, but often passed over as too heavy and bulky.
Here is a perfect solution: a single squash blossom pendant that is not only easy to wear, but beautifully formed, with a quiet, and powerful presence.
Noted for modern pieces that are strongly traditional, as well, Jack Tom makes it look easy.
Artfully given an antique patina, this graceful, yet dramatic, pendant is proportioned with finesse.
With its muted gleam and darkened areas, it speaks softly but clearly: “I am a lovely, age-old symbol in a modern dress.”
Impeccable in workmanship, it is also a striking design.
The generous bail allows you to slip it over heishi, beads, or whatever you like around your neck.
It will make simple beads look spectacular.
Everything old is new again – if a gifted artist reinvents it to shine in our time.
