Description
 

Joe Herrera Quintana (1915-1991) is considered by many to be one of the true master silversmiths of the 20th century. Learning metal work during WWII, after the war he returned to his home in the Cochiti Pueblo and began his career in jewelry making. He apprenticed with well-known jeweler Frank Patania and worked in a number of shops in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque NM.

This stunning squash blossom necklace is the perfect size for either a man or woman. A beautiful satin patina graces the entire piece with a heavy silver weight of 199 grams. The Naja with bail measures 3" long x 2 3/4" wide. The 22 blossoms are 2" long and are strung with beautifully finished beads. Total length is 22 1/2" long. Hallmarked with J H Q, with the thin H. Absolutely beautiful on!!
