This necklace is 24" long and was made by Santo Domingo (Kewa) Artist Delbert Crespin.
It has large heishi of blue turquoise, black jet, reddish brown pipestone and creamy white shell.

Weight: about 22 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
