The Santo Domingo reservation is the home of some of the pre-eminent Native American jewelers and artists.  Santo Domingo jewelry of heishi, typically shell, turquoise, jet, and other precious and non-precious materials, is world renowned for its fineness in materials and workmanship. 

Santo Domingo necklaces are made of heishi, discs of shell or turquoise that have been ground, drilled, and strung to create a beautiful, melodious mix of stones and colors.  Click on the 'create' icon for more information on how jewelers create heishi.  

The Santo Domingo reservation is located just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
