Josephine is known as a fine creator of heishi necklaces, an age-old form of jewelry, brought up-to-date by modern tools and artistic vision. She has won prizes for some of her original, handmade designs.
This necklace is a wonderful combination of classic shell tabs, interspersed with the minuscule olive shell heishi the artist is known for.
Natural spiny oyster shell has been sliced into irregular tabs, that exhibit a variety of the shell’s innate coloration.
In this case, the result is a medley of sandy creams, tans and warm brown, even a bit of faint pink.
Chocolate-y brown baby olive shell is a complementary hue, echoing those warm tones.
Hard to find in most Native jewelry, this creamy warm palette is welcome, since it will go with just about every color imaginable.
Casual, but striking, this necklace is perfect in every season, with tees, patio-party garb, office, and everyday wear.
Wear a piece of history, and enjoy the admiring comments.
