Orange Spiny Oyster Shell handmade graduated 10mm -6mm heishi Beads 16", (The price is for one 16 inch strand so Buy 1 or all of the strands). These strands feature beautiful beads of genuine Spiny Oyster,(they have only been stabilized for hardness). These heishi beads were hand shaped and drilled and are ready for stringing which makes them perfect for anyone who wants to create their own jewelry. The literal meaning of Heishi is "shell" and specifically refers to pieces of shell which have been drilled and ground into beads and then strung into necklaces. More and more frequently, however, heishi (hee-shee) has come to refer to hand-made tiny beads made of any natural material. The origin of heishi is fascinating indeed, and is inescapably linked to the ancient history of the people most proficient in its making, the Santa Domingo Pueblo Indians. It is safe to say that this is the oldest form of jewelry in New Mexico (and perhaps in North American), pre-dating the introduction of metals. Centuries ago, the shells used by the Pueblo Indian to make beads were obtained in trade from the Gulf of California. A string of good heishi will have a uniform consistency.NOTE: (ASK US ABOUT OUR WHOLESALE QUANTITY PRICES). We have been selling and trading Native American items since 1974.
