Gorgeous old stone beads, one so treasured it was wrapped with silver and cemented.  Killer!  Jewels placed these beads perfectly between our hand woven cord and centered another coveted ornament, a white polka dotted red glass trade bead at the center.

One of a lind

Central bead: just under .5″
Necklace length: 19.5″

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 or him.
