This stunning necklace is 26" long and was made by Santo Domingo (Kewa) Artist Paul Tenorio.
It features rare handcrafted fine heishi beads of blue turquoise, black jet, melon clam shell and red trade beads.
Handcrafted heishi beads is becoming a lost art.

Weight: about 10 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
