What is a Fetish Necklace?
First, a Native American fetish is a stone or shell carving, usually in the image of an animal. Indian fetishes can be carried or displayed. Those that are carried are often called pocket fetishes. Those that are displayed are called table fetishes. Zuni artists are the traditional fetish carvers, but there are many talented Navajo carvers as well.
American fetish necklaces use small fetishes that are drilled and strung like
beads with fine shell, turquoise or jet heishi in between. The animals can vary
but often include birds, bears, horses, mountain lions, turtles, foxes, wolves
and many others. The stones usually used include turquoise, mother of pearl, pink
shell, acoma jet, serpentine, pipestone and many others.
