This sterling silver bead features a two-sided turtle fetish design with a deeply etched pattern on its back. The bead is oxidized to highlight the design details. This bead makes a great centerpiece when used alone and an eye-catching design element when combined with other beads. In Native American culture, a fetish is a carved image of a particular animal or bird, believed to possess special spiritual powers.
• Bead sizes and hole sizes are approximate and may vary slightly from bead to bead.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
