Our White Clam Shell Heishi is a pure white color that is a classic among shell heishi beads. It is only available in 4-5 mm diameter plain strands that are temporarily strung in 24" lengths (except for White Clam Combo Chokers). See related items below).
Heishi are the simple yet elegant wafer-like tubular beads which have been used in the jewelry of many cultures from ancient Egypt to the American Southwest. In the Santo Domingo Pueblo of New Mexico the art and craft of heishi making reached its highest form of refinement. Crazy Crow Trading Post's shell heishi is a fine, imported product that should never be confused for the more expensive hand-crafted shell and stone heishi of Native Americans.
