In some Native American cultures, it is tradition for an infant to be beaded an amulet, known as an umbilical fetish, in the form of an animal to store and protect the child’s spirit.

This little beaded beauty traces back to the 1970s, a traditional umbilical fetish in the shape of a turtle, crafted from brain-tanned leather and small seed beads in an alternating geometric checkered pattern. A one-of-a-kind vintage find.
