This 5-strand Heishi bead necklace is handmade by Andrew and Gladys Pacheco, of the Santo Domingo Pueblo, in New Mexico. They have used tiny Heishi beads mingled with coral, spiny oysters, lapis, turquoise, shell, coral, and mother-of-pearl beads to make this a delightful addition to your collection. One strand has one large turquoise, the mark of Gladys. Sterling Silver cones and beads finish the ends of this 20" necklace. The closure is a lobster claw clasp. Each item of Native American jewelry is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
