It has a certain look that can’t be compare with other necklace you have ever met before because the designs are typically made with turquoise and sterling silver. Turquoise cabochons that are bezel-set in silver make it into bracelets, conches, earrings, and necklaces. A necklace fashioned with certain elements of a squash plant flower is a squash blossom necklace. Whether the necklace resembles the flower is in the eye of the beholder.

The squash blossom comes in on the necklace part of the necklace, specifically in the beads that make up the rest of the piece. The ‘bead’ is turquoise, more correctly described as a turquoise cabochon (cab, for short) in a bezel setting. Soldered onto one side of each cab are three separate pieces of silver serving as the petals of the blossom. This is where creativity enters the design of each ‘blossom’ bead: the silver petals may be small or long and thin, wispy or substantial, but always three silver petals will emanate from each turquoise bead.

Completing the blossom on the opposite side is a shank. The shank is drilled, forming a hole through which the blossom beads are strung to form a necklace. Often, the blossom bead has no shank, the hole for stringing being drilled right through the turquoise bead or cab.
