Offered for sale: All turquoise fetishes in a 10 strand necklace with shell heishi and turquoise fox shape spacer bars.
Impressive fetish necklace with 10 strands of all turquoise fetishes separated by 'brownlip' shell heishi and with fox shape spacers bars which keep the individual strands from tangling.
The longest strand is 9 inches in length from the bottom of the spacer bar to the large turquoise eagle fetish which measures 1 7/8 inches by 1 inch which is the center piece of this necklace. This distance from the end of the hook to the space bar is 6 1/2 to 7 inches. The hook adds an extra inch. The shortest strand measures 8 inches fox spacer bar to fox spacer bar. The fox spacer bars are 2 inches in length.
The small turquoise fetishes ( avg size 1/2 by 1/4 inch) all appear to be foxes all they do differ somewhat in size and shape. Separating the fetishes are 'brownlip' shell heishi. The heishi strands feel smooth to the touch when you run your fingers down the length of the necklace indicating that they are well made with uniform size and are no too tightly strung which causes the heishi to overlap the other heishi.
The necklace is terminated in silver color metal cones (They have no markings. I will test them with acid when I get the time ). The necklace has a hook and eye closure.
