One of the things I love about southeastern Arizona is the variety and abundance of wildlife to be found just outside your back door. It’s no wonder the animal fetish necklace is a style of jewelry dating back to ancient times.
This simple but stunning necklace provides a modern take on that ancient style, using sterling silver animal fetishes and sterling heishi beads rather than the traditional carved stone and shell. The variety of animal fetishes is accented by traditional Navajo style sterling silver stamped beads and tiny turquoise nuggets.
THE MATCHING EARRINGS ARE SOLD SEPARATELY, but complete the ensemble perfectly, with sterling beads and hummingbird fetish. You can find the earrings here:
The necklace measures 24 inches long, with each of the sterling fetishes averaging around 1/2 inch. It closes with a simple sterling silver hook and eye.
