As it is becoming a trend, raw materials have a finite shelf life. Human beings root around until they are gone and the powers that be have put an end to the collection and sale of fossil ivory in raw form. As a result carvers receive less and less to carve into fetishes. An older piece this early fetish pendant by Claudia Peina was found in a shoebox from the late 70s. An infant pendant with a wire glued in a hole drilled in the back then bent in a circle. It a unique piece and it is for sale to you today!

The mouth is inlaid of red coral and the eyes and other designs are inlaid of jet. It is unsigned due to age. Grab a handfull of Zuni fetish jewelry history!
