MY (new) PEACE of jewelry


I love this PEACE!
Ok, I love all MY PEACEs.
MY latest PEACE that I made here features
chunky Turquoise HEISHI (pronounced Hee-shee) beads
hanging from a chunky brass Rolo Chain
 
 
What is heishi?
Heishi beads originally come from the Navajos,
a Native American tribe from the Southwest.
Heishi means shell and in the past, referred to pieces of shell
that have been drilled and hand rolled or ground into
bead shapes and strung as necklaces.
 
 
 
What I like about this necklace,
is it can be paired with other necklaces
for a pretty nice bohemian look

 
I paired it with one of my multi-strand, various Link Chain Necklaces


Available on Etsy

 
I paired it with a simple Rolo Chain

    1. Thanks so much, Heather! I like making necklaces that can be paired with other necklaces. It allows the necklace to be worn so many different ways.
