These earrings feature deep purple spiny oyster shell with heishi in between.
Lightweight and easy to wear.
They are 1 1/2" long by about 3/16" wide
Weight: 2.4 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.
