"Liquid silver is often referred to as “liquid heishi” or “silver heishi”. Silver heishi is fine, tubular, silver beads that are hand-strung together in what appears to be seamless strands of silver. When these strands are strung together, liquid silver has a fluid feel almost like silk or water running through your fingers reflecting beautifully in the light."
