Colorful and hand carved Native American fetish necklace. The necklace holds 18 fetishes made with quality stones and shells, which we believe to be carved into badgers and or fox. At the center hangs a magnificent turquoise thunderbird. The fetishes are separated by heishi beads and spaced out turquoise beads. At the top are silver cone enclosures with a hook and eye clasp. The necklace measures 23.25" long and weighs 10 grams. There are no markings. We believe the necklace to be Zuni but cannot verify this. This piece is in good condition. There is one fetish (third up from the thunderbird) that has a line around it's body. At first glance I thought this might have been a break that someone repaired however after a closer look, the line is smooth and the stone is still strong so it may be a natural vein in the stone. Either way this does not detract from the beauty of this authentic and quality piece.
