Three-strand Zuni fetish necklace shows off 77 hand-carved amber hummingbirds, bears, wolves, bighorn sheep, turtles and fish. The 3 strands come together with 2 large hummingbird fetishes and it is finished with sterling silver cones. It is strung with fine jet heishi. Overall necklace length is about 30″ long and the fetishes average about 1″ long. Circa 1980’s. We rarely see amber used for fetishes as it is difficult to polish. When the amber heats from polishing, it tends to melt. The necklace came in a collection and belonged to a local Arizona native. We believe that 3 fine Zuni artists are represented in the necklace, Lena Boone, Dinah Gasper and Lavina Tsikewa.
