Zuni Multistone Frog Fetish Necklace by Debra Gasper

Product Description

A Multistone Frog Fetish Necklace Set by Debra Gasper. Seventeen miniature Frog Fetish sit along a Brown Beaded Necklace. The fetishes alternate materials symmetrically and include Varasite, Floride, Green Serpentine, Lapis, Amber, Angelite and Wild Horse. The overall effect is eye-catching, yet calming, in its use of paler colder materials. When worn, the Necklace has a pleasing symmetry with the same stone use on either side of the central hanging Frog Fetish. A pair of dropped, matching Frog Fetish Earrings completes the look.

Zuni carver Debra Gasper specializes in intricate and well- executed Fetish carvings. She works with a range of stones including Black Marble, Turquoise, Picasso Marble and Fluorite. Gasper often collaborates with her husband Ray Tsethlikai, and together they are known for free-standing fetishes and fetish necklaces made in her family's tradition of old-style fetish carving. While they have retained traditional forms, they have experimented with a wide range of new materials and often use silver dot inlay on their fetishes. Gasper heralds from the prolific Weahkee family, who are among the oldest carving families in Zuni. In fact, their origins predate history and the earliest recorded Weahkee carver was Teddy Weahkee who worked with noted Zuni dealer C.G. Wallace.
