Gorgeous tear drop & heishi turquoise Native American necklace, jacula earrings
Gorgeous coloring and getting more rare, teal colored Apache tear turquoise beads are strung with turquoise heishi to form a 22 long necklace, finished off with sterling beads and sterling hook and eye. There are matching Jacula style earrings of the same turquoise in an approx. 2.5 long earrings with sterling beads and ear hooks. This looks very pretty with a simple white shirt and jeans. The formation of these tear tabs is long and tedious as they are carved by hand, giving the various formations as the turquoise leads the maker. The heishi is done in strands explained below. This set is from the Colorado River Indian Tribes Pow Wow. Is sliced into the width of choice and then cut into crude squares with a nipper. Once each square is made, the bead maker drills a tiny hole through the center of the shape.

Each rough-hewn bead is then strung together with hundreds of others in anticipation of the grinding process. The entire string is held against a grinding wheel, typically made today from silicone carbide material and electrically powered. The bead maker gently holds the string of beads against the turning stone and allows it to begin chipping away at the outermost edges. Just how much the beads will be worn down depends on the bead maker's goal.
