What is a jacla?

Traditionally a heishi necklace would have a secondary pendant (called a jacla, jacloh, or jacklaw) of turquoise tied on. Originally these may have been heishi earrings that were stored with the necklace and tied onto it. Then loops of heishi specific for this purpose were tied onto the lower center of the heishi necklace. A variation of this is a heishi necklace with vertical slab or chunk stones at the center or a layered disc with bead loops hanging from the disc.

What is heishi?

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.
