RARE VINTAGE Salmon Pink Conch Shell Heishi Multi Strand Necklace 31
RARE VINTAGE Handcrafted Salmon & Blush Pink Conch Shell Heishi & Rondelle Multi strand Necklace. Vintage: probably 1970's to 1980's. This gorgeous handcrafted beaded triple-strand necklace features slightly graduated strands that lay nicely nestled, light salmon tone conch shell with the most delicate blushing pink color. The conch shell beads are heishi & rondelle in shape. The piece is finished with sterling silver cone beads with hook clasp, not marked for sterling silver, however this is common with older pieces. The necklace is 31 long. Heishi (meaning "shell") beads are small disc or tube-shaped beads made of shells or stones, traditionally cut, polished and drilled by hand. They originate with the Kewa Pueblo, previously known as the Pueblo of Santo Domingo, people of New Mexico. The silver cone beads have developed a lovely patina from age. All beads intact and in wonderful condition. Probably made in the 1970's - 80's.
