Santo Domingo Heishi Bead Necklace. See below for more information.

Heishi (say 'hee-shee') beads are usually made from organic shells or ground and polished stones. Heishi is possibly the oldest form of jewelry in North America. Santo Domingo artist Ina Shavone has handmade this 17" necklace and accented the turquoise and colored shell with darker heishi beads. The hook-and-eye closure is sterling silver. This is a very easy to wear necklace. Each piece of Native American jewelry is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
