My daughter-in-law wanted a stacked fetish necklace for Christmas and I felt funny when she asked me for it because, I’m a little embarrassed to say, but I thought it was something obscene. Now I know a little more about it but wonder if you would explain further.
Name Withheld on Request.
No need to be embarrassed – first of all the word fetish could conjure up some uneasy feelings.
From an online dictionary:
1. stacked – arranged in a stack
2. stacked – (of a woman’s body) having a large bosom and pleasing curves
Native American necklace #1.
Odd request for Christmas #2.
So, a Stacked Fetish Necklace is one where the hand carved stone animals are placed closer together than normal, in essence stacked on top of each other. Here is an example of a regular fetish necklace and a stacked fetish necklace by the same artist, Navajo Neil Thomas.
