10 carved birds (wazhink'a) of spiny oyster shell are old and revered 


I've mixed them with 40 inches of dingy white trade beads (1940's) some copper elements and a perfectly preserved Kingman turquoise nugget


deer skin leather lace fringe (in saddle) completes the piece


I've held on to these for years and finally decided to use some. I know that when they go, I'll  likely never find them again/high quality fetish is hard to come by, especially vintage spiny with her pearly whites and varigated orange hues


perfect for the changing seasons/layers well with other pieces/measures 23 inches long
