A tabletta (also tablita) is a board headdress having stair step edges and decorated with sky scenes and feathers front and back. It is worn by women during ceremonies. A harness holds it onto the head, so that the widest portion is seen from the front or the back.

Jet (Acoma Jet) - A solid, durable type of lignite coal that originated from wood material. It is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region, among other places, thus the name Acoma Jet. It is very popular with Indian artists for carving fetishes. It is also used for inlaying jewelry but usually is not used in jewelry stone sets. Jet can be heavy or very lightweight and it is sometimes mistaken for plastic. Read about stones.
