Graduated Heishi Banded Natural Hammer Shell 18" Necklace Strand
Natural Graduated Heishi Beads with the classic Heishi appearance created as light and dark layers alternate with each other. In this hammer shell, the lighter layers are a little translucent and pearly. The pattern is more random with an old-world, tribal vibe. Very reminiscent of the original Heishi worn by the Pueblo for centuries. These 18" strands start out on the ends at 4.5mm and gradually increase thickness to between 10mm and 12mm wide. The individual beads also vary in thickness. See the photos to get a good idea of the variation. Carry on the Pueblo tradition with high grade natural Shell Graduated Heishi Beads.
