Our Teton Spike Fetish is another whimsical design. Inspired by Wyoming’s history that surrounds the old days when the railroad made it’s way through Wyoming in the mid to late 1800’s. A time when they hand drove metal spikes into the rails as it built it’s west.
This fetish was designed to be placed on a flute where the focusing channel is cut into the body of the flute. However like most of out fetish designs it can be adapted for those flutes that need the focusing channel cut into the bottom of the fetish itself. This is best done before you shape your Spike.
The Teton Spike is designed to have a chimney cut into it. Most of our Spikes are cut with a chimney to fit a 3/8″ Wide Focusing Channel. A bit tricky to tie to your flute but we ship them with Bison Lace already attached so you can see how it is done. Finish with oils or lacquers or even paint with acrylics… the choice is your.
Note: All pre-cut Teton Spikes are a bit large allowing for you to craft down as you see fit. They come in two sizes one for smaller flutes and the larger ones are for large flutes with sufficient nesting area. Best worked with a dremel, sanding block and sand paper.
4 Fetish Options Available
- Purchase a rough cut Do It Yourself (DIY) fetish and you complete the shaping and finishing of the fetish your liking.
- Purchase one of our already pre-shaped ready to finish fetishes. These have been shaped by me and are ready for the final sanding prior to applying your desired finish.
- Purchase a fully completed fetish ready to attach to your flute. Each one of these will have specific dimensions and feature of the fetish providing you more information so you can make an informed choice
- I offer custom work specific to your flute. This requires at the very least accurate images and measurements of you flute. I prefer you send me the flute you want the fetish made for so I can accurately match it to your flute.
