African Ostrich Shell Heishi



19th century, Africa
This piece is hippie chic.  Our gorgeous hand woven cord separates each bead bringing a subtle sophistication. Layer it with an amulet, a pendant on a chain or as always, our finest woven cord.   It’s the refined and organic.

Jewels has been able to make a few of these though of course no two exact

Average shell: just under 3/8″
Necklace length:  27.5″  (Wear it long or doubled)

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.
