A Santo Domingo artist created these impressive loop turquoise earrings with an oxidized sterling silver bead at the top and bottom. Santo Domingo artisans have been creating heishi (hee-shee) beads for over 1,000 years. Heishi beads are discs of shell or stone that have been ground into smooth barrel shapes, then drilled and strung to create beautiful, smooth flexible tubes of stones. The Santo Domingo Pueblo is located near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Santo Domingo heishi is world renowned for its fineness in materials and workmanship. They are light weight and so versatile you'll enjoy wearing them with any outfit.
