Green turquoise discs interspersed with green turquoise barrels and sterling silver beads.
Artist
Susan Teller, Navajo


A unique choker for those who love the green turquoise like we do.

This choker has about 9 inches of the disc, barrel and silver bead arrangement toward the front and the balance is made up of thinner green turquoise heishi beads.

This makes the necklace lay more comfortably around the neck.

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.
