African Ostrich Shell Heishi

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 refined and organic.

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.
