The Heishi handcraft is a long and meticulous process: First, rough-cut stones or shells are drilled and then strung on a wire, after which the artist holds both ends of the strand and carefully draws the beads back and forth accross a grinding wheel or other rough surface to shape the Heishi beads.
High-quality hand-made Heishi beads should feel uniform and smooth to the touch, such as these ones.
Pueblo, "Kewa": Native tribe of the South-West, notably known for making Heishi beads, little handmade beads in tubular or puck shapes, composed of different materials and stones (turquoise, black-jet, coral and shell).
