What is a Fetish Necklace?

Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationFirst, 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.

Native American Jewelry and Fetish Carving BooksNative 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.
