Santo Domingo 5 Strand Heishi Necklace
This Santo Domingo 5 Strand Heishi Necklace was created by artist Delbert Crispen. The Santo Domingo Pueblo located just south of Santa Fe is known for its creative stone cutting and bead making. Heishi is a style of bead made by grinding the stones into disk-shaped beads to form long smooth strands. Our single strand Heishi necklace has always been one of our most popular necklaces. This 5 strand version creates a dynamic modern necklace with roots in ancient bead making. Black jet, pipestone, turquoise, and white shell strands are brought together with plates of black jet and a sterling silver clasp. Completely handmade in New Mexico.
