Jesse Robbins Cheyenne Necklace
Inspired by the classic squash blossoms of the Four Corners, Jesse put his own twist into this necklace. The necklace features 34 tooled and hand-finished beads. The holes have been nail-set punched, leaving an elegant and classic look. Each bead has been hand filed and finished giving the beads a texture reminiscent of the early Navajo and Pueblo beads made over 100 years ago.
Mixed into the beads are ten motif-style stamped and filed ingot blossoms set with Cheyenne Turquoise. Bringing the necklace together is a tremendous little tufa cast naja set with two Cheyenne Turquoise Stones.
The Necklace is strung on hand-cut brain-tanned deer lace finished with a cotton string wrap. Accenting the wrap is a beautiful Harcross Turquoise Tab.
