2-Strand Clam Shell and Heishi Necklace
Joe Pacheco is a veteran jeweler who specializes in heishi – little disks of stones and shells.
This ancient form of jewelry is now much more refined than the lumpy chunks and irregular disks of old.
The disks that compose this beautiful necklace are made from clam shell.
Joe is highly skilled at making this style of heishi from a variety of materials, slicing, dicing, drilling, sanding, and polishing them into these beautifully graduated disks. Even so, there is usually a pile of broken materials, when making heishi.
He even added a little extra to this necklace by including a second strand.
Since it goes so well with casual clothes, as well as business garb, this heishi necklace will get worn very, very often.
Classic, understated, and very handsome, this necklace is perfect as a daily driver or for special occasions!
