Paula says - "A rondelle, or roundel bead, is a bead that is not perfectly round but flattened somewhat, like a saucer. Jet is a natural black material that is ideal for a bead necklace like this one because it is so lightweight."

What is heishi?

Heishi means shell and in the past, referred to pieces of shell that have been drilled and hand rolled or ground into bead shapes and strung as necklaces. With the reduced availability of some shell materials, the modern Native American artists also use hand made beads of other natural materials including stones when making heishi necklaces.

Acoma Jet is a solid, durable type of lignite coal that originated from wood. It is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region, among other places, thus the name Acoma Jet, or Jet for short. It is very popular for heishi, inlay and for carving fetishes.
