Wampum Shell Necklace Santo Domingo Pueblo Kewa Heishi Hand Made Beads SouthWest
This is lovely hand made Santo Domingo Pueblo kewa heishi necklace. Elegant and beautiful Southwestern collectible jewelry. Natural rare purple and white WAMPUM shells from North Eastern US. Hand made at the Pueblo. Silver plated clasps and beads. Wampum is a traditional shell bead of the Eastern Woodlands tribes of Native Americans. It includes white shell beads hand fashioned from the North Atlantic channeled whelk shell and white and purple beads made from the quahog or Western North Atlantic hard-shelled clam. Before European contact, strings of wampum were used for storytelling, ceremonial gifts, and recording important treaties and historical events, such as the Two Row Wampum Treaty or The Hiawatha Belt. The first Colonists adopted it as a currency in trading with them. Eventually, the Colonists applied their technologies to more efficiently produce wampum, which caused inflation and ultimately its obsolescence as currency. Domingo & Sally are both members of the Santo Domingo Pueblo tribe, New Mexico. Santo Domingo Pueblo is named for St. Dominic, the village celebrates an annual feast day on August 4th of each year to honor him. On that day, residents of the Pueblo and other pueblos participate in traditional corn dances. Santo Domingo Pueblo is located in Sandoval County, New Mexico, about 25 miles (40 km) south of Santa Fe. Most of the residents of the Pueblo are Native Americans who speak a dialect of the Keresan Language. Much of the Santo Domingo jewelry made today is very similar to Anasazi jewelry found in digs at Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde. Some of the jewelry found in these digs is more than a thousand years old. Santo Domingo Beads are very fine and of high quality grade, some of the best heishi on the market. The word “Heishi”, is from the Keresan word meaning “shell, ” and traditionally referred to shell beads. Traditional tribal art work, intricate details. A definite conversation piece. Collectible quality work of art, techniques passed down for centuries within the tribe. Museum quality heirloom set that will be a fantastic addition to any collection! Total length: 21 inches (end to end). Pendant size: 1.5 inches. Large shell not included. This item is in the category “Jewelry & Watches\Ethnic, Regional & Tribal\Necklaces & Pendants”.
