Originally, Heishi Beads were small pieces of Shell, which were ground into round shapes and strung onto Necklaces and Bracelets. But now, Heishi Beads have come to include all types of small Beads, including those made from Copper, Brass, Nickel, Coconut Shell, Wood, and more. Heishi Beads look great strung by themselves, or when used as accents with other Beads.
