Santo Domingo artists are known for their heishi.¬† The word ‚Äúheishi‚Äú means ‚Äúshell‚ÄĚ in the Keresan language.¬† Traditionally Santo Domingo jewelry makers created their heishi jewelry out of shell.¬† The shell is hand cut into a flat disc.¬† Today, other stones that Santo Domingo artists cut in this manner, are also referred to as heishi.¬† With modern tools and innovations, artists can create different styles of beads and use different gemstones like turquoise, coral, jet, serpentine, and spiny oyster.
