Description
 

This style of beadwork is thought to be the oldest form of jewelry from New Mexico and is still practiced today mostly among Native Americans of the Santo Domingo (Kewa) and San Felipe Pueblos. It predates the metalworking and lapidary techniques practiced by the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni, which were introduced by Europeans. This lovely 5 strand necklace features materials of black jet, melon shell, pipe stone, olive shell and turquoise commonly used by the artists that hand crafted each bead. This heishi is all American hand crafted and is not foreign made, dyed heishi from overseas. A great deal of hard work goes into the making of these type necklaces. It is just beautiful on!

The necklace is 26" total length including silver cones, with 3mm heishi beads.
