Multi-Strand Coral and Heishi Necklace. $350. SOLD.

Multi Strand Coral Necklace

Branch coral — particularly the dark, blood-red coral — is difficult to find anymore; it’s endangered, and what little remains on the market is all there is.  That scarcity makes finely-wrought bead necklaces like this one all the more valuable.  Here, six separate strands of tiny natural branch-coral tube beads are separated by classic olivella-shell heishi.  The same heishi repeats in tightly-strung rows near the neck of each strand.  An older piece from Wings’s private collection, by Clarita and Vera Tenorio (Kewa Pueblo).  Total wearable length about 26″.

Natural branch coral beads; olivella-shell heishi
$350 + shipping, handling, and insurance
