Turquoise Heishi Necklace Old Pawn. Overall length is 28 3/4. Length of turquoise heishi is 20 1/4.
The turquoise tapers slightly from about 3/16" to 1/8". So many memories with this necklace... I haven't worn it in probably 20 years. Bought on an epic high school road trip, spring break 1972. From San Diego to Gallup, New Mexico.
Destination: Gallup for turquoise jewelry. 4 surfer girls in search of jewelry the color of the ocean. 2 of us bought a 2 strand heishi necklace in a pawn shop.
We each took a strand. Originally strung on white string. In the 1980s I restrung it and made it longer. The shell heishi is from another old pawn heishi and coral necklace. Kind of wish I didn't take that necklace apart now...
