Zuni Animal Fetish Carving Earrings by Dinah Gasper
Zuni artist Dinah Gasper is a talented and cherished fetish carver. She creates wonderfully detailed and whimsical animal fetish jewelry like these sweet earrings of turtles and birds carved of fossilized ivory with brown olivella shell heishi.
These are not your average Zuni fetish earrings. They're so much better, yet you can wear them everyday if you'd like and with just about anything.
The earrings are hooks for pierced ears. They dangle 1 1/4" long from top of hook to bottom of earring. The bird fetish measures 1" across. They are unsigned but definitely Dinah Gasper's work. Ask us as we just may still have one of her handmade fetish necklaces.
