Zuni hand carved bird fetish necklace with graduated sizes, ranging from 5/8 inch to 1 5/8 inch. Very detailed fetishes (carved on both sides) of abalone, mother of pearl, spiny oyster and shell, interspersed with heishi of horn, turquoise, shell and random multi colored beads. It has no clasp closure, so must be worn long, and although the length is 30 inches, the drop is about 13 inches when worn. It's in wonderful vintage condition. no apparent flaws. The mother of pearl and abalone fetishes just gleam, two upside down birds....perhaps the signature of the artist.
