The stones to this squash blossom are made with ground stone powder and resin composite and have wire connectors, instead of plastic, with Navajo beads! We want you to feel fancy with this on and not have to worry about the "fancy" cost. We take pride in making these for you ladies and don't want you to be disappointed. We love the quality of these! This is 17" long and has a 3" extender on it.
