DESCRIPTION:

Get your western look on!!

This has to be one of the best looking Squash Blossom pendants out there!! Not only will the huge hand made bead size do it for ya,but the finish is too die for & really gives it such an incredible look!

The blossom is made of a durable weight sterling & is finished in a matte/brushed finish.

Wear this alone or layer a bunch of other related styles with it! With or without anything else,this is sure to stand it's ground!

Comes with a 24" brown leather neck strap that slips over the head.If you like it to drop longer,the leather can be untied (or cut) & another leather piece can be added.

Perfect addition to complete that rugged Santa Fe/SW look!

**Out of all of these that my vendor had & that were made by Ernest,this was the only one not hallmarked! All the rest however,had a highly polished look to them & weren't as attractive as this one!**
