.This eye-catching Necklace showcases 36 Talismans — also known as Fetishes — artfully paired with Smoky Quartz, Tortoise Shell Heishi and Sterling Silver. The Talismans are meticulously handcrafted from 3 types of Jasper and Black Horn, and each one is unique. They are generously sized, with the smallest being approximately 1/2-inch by 3/4-inch and the largest 3/4-inch by 1-1/8-inch. The figures include:
- Black Jasper Buffalo
- Picture Jasper Horses
- Rainbow Jasper Bears
- Black Horn Buffalo, Lions and Bear
The Stones exhibit a variety of colors ranging from cream to sand to chocolate brown along with gray, green and black. Each Talisman stands on its own, yet blends beautifully with the other 35 pieces. The color palate is both striking and easy to love.
The Talismans are arrayed on 3 strands of 3mm Tortoise Shell Heishi. The Shell Heishi is a glossy dark brown and provides a neutral backdrop for the Stones. They are further complemented by 5.5mm Smoky Quartz Rounds, which add luster and translucency to the design. The Necklace is embellished with six Sterling Silver Leaf Charms, which are gracefully curved with ribs and veins stamped on both sides. The Leaf Charms are accompanied by 6mm Sterling Silver Leaf-Print Rondelles, and 6mm Sterling Silver Discs. The Sterling shines brightly against the richly-colored Talismans. At the top of the Necklace the 3 Strands are gathered by two 6-by-8mm Sterling Silver Rondelles, above which the Tortoise Shell Heishi continues for 3 inches more. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Wavy Sterling Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 140 grams and the 3 Necklace strands are 26-1/2, 28 and 29-1/2 inches long (when wearing, a vertical length of about 11 inches).
