squash blossom necklace

Posted on

You probably know by now that my love for the squash blossom necklace runs deep and inspires pieces like the Naja Necklace. So naturally I was beyond excited to eventually inherit my grandmothers, which was gifted to her by my "step-grandfather" while they were living in Montana and Wyoming. (I also received several dresses she made that fit me like a glove and look like they could be hanging in a contemporary store. So special!) This storytelling aspect is partly what draws me to jewelry. It can tell so much about generations and eras of the past. Luckily my grandmother was a bit of a magpie, and looking through her jewelry with my mom has revealed bits and pieces of her life that I wouldn't have otherwise known. She was certainly a multifaceted woman – hunting and running a business alongside the men, while sewing fashionable clothes for herself and my mom.

The squash blossom necklace is truly a piece of art, so I decided to display it as such in my home when it's not in use. This duality is what makes jewelry so powerful – it's a beautiful physical object with enduring personal meaning and it's a statement of identity that can make us feel confident and unique. I count myself lucky to have a hand in putting such a thing out into the world!
