Delicate Heishi Turquoise Choker Necklace
Before the Native people of the Southwest used metals, they made heishi, meaning "shell." The beads are flat, smooth discs, and have been hand-cut, hand-drilled and hand-polished. Santo Domingo artist, Ramona Bird, mastered this traditional jewelry making technique while crafting this super delicate, single strand pen shell and turquoise heishi choker! Clasp is made from 925 sterling silver.
