Where was this "Zuni" necklace made?

I know that this necklace is probably not Zuni-made. I’ve read that in real Zuni fetish necklaces the animals are suggestive in form, not so realistic, and they do not contain armadillos or turtles. How about rabbits or beaver?
I bought this necklace at an Indian Pow-Pow in California in the early 80s. The seller told me that it was not Zuni-made, but was made by another tribe. He actually said that it was made by Sioux. Is this possible?
My question is: what is the origin of this necklace?

Welcome to turquoise people. I have seen lots of interesting critters on Zuni fetish necklaces. I would call this a Zuni fetish necklace.
