Dinah Gasper's orthoceras Bear would make a wonderful fetish to carry with you. Bear fetishes are used for healing, protection, strength, journeying, mothering, hunting and gathering. She inlays her creature's eyes and nostrils to remember her mother Edna Leki who did the same thing. Dinah's used turquoise for these lovely facial features. She permanently attached a sterling silver signature label to this great bear which is about 2" long, 5/8" wide and 1" tall. Orthoceras were ancient cephalopods with a straight coned shell. They are relatives of modern day squid.
