Gold Lip Shell Heishi Beads Natural Santo Domingo Style
Natural Gold Lip Heishi with gemmy golden hues. These strands have lots of variation in color and texture, like a symphony written by nature. This shell has an iridescent quality and glows a little bit in the light. As with most Heishi, the shell is cut in such a way that the layers of the shell create a banding pattern along the strand to emphasize the small size of the beads and create that eye-catching repetition of tiny shapes. This color pairs really well with Turquoise on the bluer end of the spectrum. This Heishi averages 3mm wide, but individual beads can be between 2mm and 3mm. The length (or thickness) of individual beads ranges from 1.5mm to 4mm. Because of their genius way of using the natural materials of the earth like this Gold Lip Shell Heishi, the style of the Santo Domingo has endured to this day.
Priced per 24" Strand.
