This 24" long Eyeglass chain was created by Santo Dominog (Kewa) Artist Ramona Bird.
It features fine white clam shell. This piece is unique in that the
artist dyes the white clam shell in hot tea (a secret method) so you get this fabulous graduated color.
These are terrific if you're always wondering where your glasses are.
Weight: 7.4 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
The literal meaning of heishi is shell and specifically refers to hand cut pieces of shell
which have been drilled and ground into beads and then strung into necklaces.
