Listed here is a beautiful necklace handmade by Santo Domingo jewelry artists, Jessie and Paul Rosetta. It features turquoise and pipestone heishi, all cut and rolled by hand.
Its length is 17 including the clasp. The turquoise heishi is just under 1/8" in diameter and the pipestone heishi is closer to 1/16". Heishi as small as this is very difficult to do well, but the end result is a lovely, delicate looking necklace! Jessie and Paul Rosetta are known for their heishi.They use traditional Santo Domingo Pueblo techniques. They begin by cutting stone or shell into small squares.
Next, a tiny hole is drilled in each, and they are strung on piano wire to be washed, ground, and sanded. The finished heishi is then strung on fine cotton and polyester cord.
The Rosetta's have shown their work at Santa Fe Indian Market since the 70s and have won numerous awards. Collectors value their work because it is limited and their techniques are stellar.
