A very charming 5 string heishi necklace of baby olive shell and old natural coral beads, designed and hand made by distinguished IACA award winning Kewa Pueblo artist Lorraine Cate.The tiny baby olive shell beads vary in colour from dark brown through beige and even black and are carefully contrasted along the string. This is further contrasted with the dark orange coral, equally spaced along each string.This outstanding necklace design, which has a bead count of over 2,000, achieves a stunning traditional American Indian look. That said, the colour palette and contrast is very modern and now. The necklace has 2 sterling silver cones, stamped with American Indian symbols, as part of the clasp. Unusually, this piece does not feature Lorraine's signature solitaire bead, for reasons best known to herself and makes it all the more special indeed. The piece is very light and smooth textured, which in itself is testament to Lorraine's special talent.
