Santo Domingo Men’s Green Turquoise Heishi Necklace

The Santo Domingo Pueblo is located near Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Santo Domingo artisans have been creating heishi (hee-shee) beads for over 1,000 years. Heishi beads are discs of shell or turquoise that have been ground into smooth barrel shapes, then drilled and strung to create beautiful, smooth flexible tubes of stones.  Santo Domingo heishi is world renowned for its fineness in materials and workmanship. Santo Domingo artist, George Gaspar, created this graduated jet and green turquoise heishi necklace finished with beads of spiny oyster and a sterling clasp.
