This Santo Domingo (Kewa) ankle bracelet is 9 1/2" long. It was made by Artist Delphanita Calabaza. The design is beautiful
with large heishi of blue turquoise, black jet, reddish brown pipestone and white colored shell.
Weight: about 5.2 grams on my scale
The heishi pieces are uniform and are about 1/8".
I placed a quarter there for scale.
The literal meaning of heishi is shell and specifically refers to pieces of shell which have been drilled and ground into beads and then strung into necklaces. more information on this fascinating subject can be found on the internet
