Paula says - "Lovely 10-Strand necklace that is so fine and well strung, it is like liquid stone. You can lay the strands flat side by side, twist them into a rope or just let them fall in place naturally any way you like it is beautiful."

Ten heishi strands meet at a center bead which is a four layer handmade disc of Acoma Jet, Turquoise, and White Clam Shell.

Below the center disc bead are five loops forming the jacla that hangs 2 1/2" long from the top of the bead.

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.
