Paula says -

"Striking contrast between the Red Coral, the Jet and the Turquoise. These are all natural pieces, that's why the coral beads, which are pieces of the coral branches, are irregular shapes, not machine made beads !!"

Navajo Heishi Necklace

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.
