19th century, European glass trade beads
The faceted glass bead was French made and traded mostly in Morocco. The pink beads were traded in parts of West Africa. Of course we strung these beads and finished the necklace with our our hand woven cord.
Jewels: “I think fantastic, so feminine with some magical beauty marks”
For those of us who wear dark colors, we make an exception for this pink.
A Jewels Limited Standard Design; no two exact
Necklace length: 24″
Citrine glass bead: just under5/8 x .5″
A note about our woven cords. We weave these by hand, every one of them. Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us. The work is labor intensive. When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace. It becomes her.
