Santo Domingo Pueblo artists are famous for their skill in making hand rolled and cut beads known as heishi. Made from shell, turquoise, and other stones, they are painstakingly cut by hand into delicate beads and strung on necklaces.

Santo Domingo Puebo artists James and Doris CorizJames Del Coriz and Dolorita G. Coriz of Santo Domingo Pueblo, New Mexico make jewelry in the traditional Santo Domingo way and use excellent Kingman and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. The beads are hand cut and turned and show excellent character and workmanship. Read more about the artists...

What is stabilized turquoise?

Often in heishi necklaces and other nugget necklaces, the turquoise has been stabilized. This means that a natural turquoise nugget has been treated with a stabilizing agent that closes the pores of the stone so it will not change color or fracture. This allows the artist to use smaller beads for necklaces; they would otherwise fracture if not stabilized. It also means your turquoise jewelry will look just as bright and beautiful years from now as from the day you purchased it. Natural turquoise, although beautiful, can deteriorate over time, losing color and stability. Most heishi and nugget necklaces use stabilized turquoise for this reason.
