One of a Kind piece
Beautiful Pueblo earrings made in Timberline turquoise (Nevada) Heishi beads and spondylus shell "corn beads".
This traditional jewel called Jacla (Navajo word for "ear string") is common to different tribes due to their products trades. It is worn as earrings and also as pendants on long Heishi beads necklaces.
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 across 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.
Hooks in sterling silver, suitable for pierced ears.
