Navaho Sterling Antique Coin Squash Blossom Eugene Hale
Navaho Sterling Antique Coin Squash Blossom Eugene Hale
This thirty-inch strand of beads is dramatic. The old coins give this an "old pawn" look to the piece. Incredibly chic to wear with jeans, or more formal occassions! Navaho artist Eugene Hale is one of the best. His work is revered for their superb craftsmanship utilizing ancient techniques passed through history in Navaho and Pueblo tradition. The Navajo were the first to produce metal-working, which can be traced to the Spanish arrival in the Southwest. Between 1884 and 1899, turquoise stones began to appear set in silver jewelry. The Zuni learned to silversmith from the Navajo in the early 1870's, and the Hopi apparently learned the craft from the Zuni. Eugene has signed this piece. Materials: Polished hand made sterling beads, chain, and genuine vintage half dollar coins, drilled, dating 1917-1943 8 Half dollars measuring 1 inch dating from: 1917 1929 1931 1934 (2) 1937 1941 1943 STUNNING Center Naja is 2” x 2” This naja is a large, heavy sandcast horseshoe form with a scrolled stem .

61/365 Treasures From My Childhood
61/365 Treasures From My Childhood
These are some assorted treasures from my childhood. The red bag is probably the strangest thing in the photograph. It was intended as a "Wampum Bag." At the time, wampum was believed by many to be a Native American word for money. Probably this was an idea from the movies. When I was quite young I participated with my father in a group through the YMCA called "Indian Guides." The intention was to foster a father son relationship, which I am sure it did. We wore headbands with feathers for meetings and everyone had an "indian name." Mine was Bright Star as written on the bag. Honestly this all sounds a little silly now. Going clockwise from the top are two mills. These were used to pay sales tax in fractions of a penny. The red ones were worth 1/10th of a cent. The green ones were worth 5 red ones or 1/2 a cent. They grey ones are also 1/2 a cent. (These were relics from before my time-I knew them as play money. The large circular "coin" was from my grandfather. It was from US Rubber (now Uniroyal} where he worked. I don't know its intended purpose. The tie claps labeled "Keds" was also from my grandfather. The wooden coin was from the Redwood Diner, a restaurant that has been out of business for at least 40 years. It was good for a free coke. The small coin is a streetcar token (we lost our last streetcar in the 1960s). The large silver coin is from Meramec Caverns. The visit was about 1960. I have kept these small tokens for a long time, and probably will keep them as long as I live. They aren't valuable except as remembrances.
