10 strands of such tiny beads represents a huge investment in time and skill. Very soothing and beautiful shade of turquoise. I've shown the beads in natural light, which shows their true color.The necklace has a total wearing length of 28 inches, so you could keep it clasped and slip it over the head. But it does help to have a clasp if you want to slip on a wide bailed pendant or your favorite jacla. The cones are 3 inches long, very elegant and curved with a stamped feather and hallmarked sterling. The feather could be decorative or a hallmark of the heishi carver. It weighs a sturdy 36 grams. That amount of weight for 10 strands of beads gives you an idea of just how remarkably fine these heishi are.
