This well-known heishi-maker is noted for her adherence to tradition. Each snowy white disk (and the tiny brown shell, too) has been hand-cut, drilled, polished and strung by the artist. Not how the individual clamshell beads are graduated; smallest at the top, largest at the bottom. There, they are separated by a minuscule disk of baby olive shell, for a ruffled, “slinky” look.Winter or summer, this heishi necklace will brighten your sweaters, blouses, dresses, and t-shirts. You will pop it on all the time, so it amortizes quickly, like all heishi.
