Zuni fetish carver Lance Cheama had never made a necklace before. We talked him into making one strand of carved turtles to string up for his first creation. He has carved twenty-one apple coral turtles and given the center piece a double head. You will find each carving done with detail that includes turquoise eyes. The necklace has been finished by being strung on silver beads. Zuni has a long history of fetish carving and wearing a fetish necklace is a wonderful way to show your appreciation of the Zuni peoples and their art.
