We may not always be available on weekends and/or holidays, but we will respond to your message, in the order it was received, when we return to the office. Master silversmith and lapidary and creator of this style, Frank Dishta’s complete jewelry set: inlaid squash blossom naja bead necklace, cuff bracelet, clip earrings, and ring in exceptional vintage condition. FRANK DISHTA was the creator of the dot style flush inlay, which now is crafted by his sons and grandchildren. His jewelry-making career began in 1924, and he quickly became a master of channel inlay technique, developing a style of his own. He was born in the Zuni Pueblo, and was exposed early on to great inlay artists. Frank did not sign his pieces, but his son Virgil and all other descendants who now use his designs hallmark their jewelry. The stones in this set are in mint-vintage condition. The Sterling silver has a dark patina that has been kept as-is. The set includes a squash blossom naja bead necklace, a cuff style bracelet, a ring, and clip earrings. Pictures don’t do these justice. Some are washed out. The main naja pendant was beautifully inlaid with various colors of turquoise, and adorned with twisted wire and silver beads all around. It measures 2 1/2″ in height by 2 1/8″ in width. Six 1 1/4 tall by 3/4 wide blossoms embellish the hand-crafted bead necklace on each side of the naja. The 1/4 beads are uniform. Beads are strung in the original foxtail chain and the piece is just over 26 1/2 long from hook to eye. This necklace weighs approximately 117.5 grams. Bracelet: This cuff was inlaid and adorned in the same fashion as the necklace. It weighs about 39 grams, it’s 1 13/16″ wide, and measures 5 3/8″, with a 1 3/16 gap. The inlaid cluster sits on a 3-tine rolled silver shank. The bracelet has a lighter patina on the shank. Ring: This ring was crafted just like the other pieces. It appears to be a size 6, but one end of the shank has to be cold-soldered for a more precise measurement. This ring is 1 5/8 long, and almost a full-finger style. Blossom clip earrings: These pieces weigh about 5 grams each, and are roughly 1 3/16″ tall by almost 3/4″ wide. Clips are in good working condition. Thank you for supporting authentic Native American art. These are museum quality pieces, a high-end collectible set that is extremely hard to find in mint condition and complete, so please, no low-ball offers. Additional notes:Hard to get true color pics but I will try again if you have an interest. All measurements are approximations. Please measure your wrist, d├ęcolletage, finger, and waist, or use an old bracelet, necklace, bolo tie, belt, and so on, to determine your size. All items in our store are preowned, and in vintage-used condition. Minor wear, light surface scratches, and other common conditions in used items should be expected. Please allow for some variation in color. We attempt to capture the actual color of the stones/shells to the best of our ability, but cameras, lighting, and monitors may not portray the exact color. When the color in the photos is significantly different from the original, we will add that information to “additional notes” at the bottom of the listing.
