The beads on this necklace appear to be (in a pattern) shell, turquoise, sliver a variety of stones (quartz?)and 2 large MOP. The central figure (approx 1 7/8" X 3/4 “) is carved and feels like sandstone or clay. The necklace measures approx. 22” and belonged to a woman who showed horses in the South West. The owner was not present.
The shells suggest Heishi to me, but the figure suggests Fetish to me. I have so much to learn.
Is this Native American and is it from the 70s? No marks to identify maker. Thank you.!
