This exclusive Necklace features a cascade of Turquoise and Black Horn Amulets – also called Fetishes – gracefully integrated with a variety of complementary elements. Native American Indians have used Fetishes throughout history, and believe they convey significant powers including healing, protection, physical & spiritual power, and swiftness. Our Necklace includes a number of powerful Fetishes, including 11 Turquoise Zuni Bears. The Zuni Bear Fetishes are about 12-to-16mm in dimension and dispaly varied hues of blue with black matrix. They dance in the Necklace along with 11 Black Horn Fetishes, which are slightly larger and are hand-carved in the shapes of Lions, Bears, Horses and Buffalo. The Fetishes are joined by a number of other Turquoise stones, including 5-by-9mm Turquoise Rectangles, 6mm Turquoise Diamonds, 4mm Heishi and 2mm Turquoise Rounds. The varying shapes and blue & green hues add splashes of color and design interest. The Turquoise and Black Horn Fetishes and other Stones are joined together by 3mm Olive Shell Heishi; the Heishi's white and brown tones present a subtle background for the more vibrant elements. The Stones are highlighted by eight 9mm Sterling Silver Rounds, which have intricate stamping and diamond cut-outs. At the top of the Necklace the 4 strands of Olive Shell Heishi transition to 7mm handcrafted Sterling Silver Ridged Rounds, providing additional sparkle and ensuring a comfortable fit. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 98 grams and the 4 Necklace strands range from 26 inches to 29 inches in length.
