Baby Olive Hishi Shell Necklace
By Santo Domingo artist Harvey Abeyta. Harvey and his wife Priscilla Nieto create beaded necklaces and other jewelry from hand-cut stones and shell. In addition to the use of high grade materials and impeccable workmanship, the family has developed a favorite material for stringing their beads: the use of carpet threading, which is extremely durable as well as comfortable to wear. The carpet threading, which they braid, makes strong knots that do not unravel while being worn.
