Pen Shell Heishi Dangle Earrings FJE0614


Before the Native peoples of the Southwest used metals, they made heishi. Meaning "shell jewelry", heishi are small tube shaped beads made of shell or stone. The Kewa Pueblo people (formerly Santo Domingo Pueblo) are renowned for their skill in making heishi. An ancient art, heishi beads have been found as far back as 6,000 BC.
