This Santo Domingo (Kewa) Eyeglass Chain is 27" long and was made by Artist Jeannette Calabaza.
It has a variety of chunky colorful stones including turquoise and white shell. It has fine dark brown heishi between the stones.
These are terrific if you're always wondering where your reading glasses are.
Weight: 25 grams on my scale
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
