Frog and turtles have appeared in carved jewelry since prehistoric times.

The turtle is considered one of the
major rain-bringing fetishes.

What is a Fetish?

A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Although carved from many types of rock, fishrock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.

Gold-lip mother of pearl is the outside edge of certain mother of pearl (mop) shells. Clear yellow to yellow -gold colors, used mostly for inlay work. Read more about stones.
