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.
