Attributable- Lee Edaakie Carved Turquoise Leaf

This turquoise leaf necklace is  extraordinary!  The colour of the turquoise is soft green, in the turquoise colour spectrum.  There is a picture in the CG Wallace book with the same silver work securing another turquoise object by Lee Edaakie, hence our attribution.  Lee and his brother worked for CGWallace between 1930-40’s.  Many artisans working for CGW Trading Post collaborated with other artists.
