Santo Domingo artists are known for their heishi.  The word “heishi means “shell” 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.
