A well-known, veteran jeweler, he specializes in heishi and accompanying stones.
A historic style of adornment, heishi – natural shells or stones, cut and drilled by hand – has been treasured as jewelry, for centuries.
In the past, the materials would have been irregular lumps and rough bits, formed with primitive hand tools.
Now, the materials are smooth and polished, like this handsomely updated version.
Dark brown, baby olive shell forms the teeny-tiny disks, a dark, but warm, accompaniment to the vibrant, red coral.
Apple coral is not as smooth and unmarked as the highest grade coral, but just as natural, and just as red.
Here, the rounded oblong beads are separated by the tiny brown heishi, a sophisticated color combination that is vibrant, but not loud.
Like most heishi, this necklace is basically casual; it is wearable for work, concerts, dinner, playgroups; whenever, and wherever, you wish.
A 3-inch+ chain allows you to vary the length slightly, to accommodate different necklines.
This is a neo-classic necklace that you will enjoy wearing – often.
