Pronounced (hee-shee). The literal meaning of Heishi is "shell" and specifically refers to pieces of shell which have been cut and drilled for use as beads. Heishi is the oldest form of jewelry here in the Southwest. Today, the Heishi cut is found in many styles of turquoise and in a wide range of sizes. Heishi beads can stand alone as choker necklaces and also make wonderful finishing beads and spacers!
