Circa 1880’s Santo Domingo Clam Shell Heishi


This heishi has everything you look for in such an old necklace & ticks all the boxes listed below.
Buying Tip
After WW2 power arrived to the Pueblos- When the holes are neat and consistent in stones or heishi, this indicates the piece was worked during the very late 1940’s -> but mostly 1950’s onwards.¬† If it is an earlier necklace the holes will be uneven inverted cones, no two holes will be the same, so always check.
