19tth- early 20th century, Amazigh (Berber), Morocco
The marvelous silver and brass charm box was once stuffed with a prayer or poem for protection or good fortune. Given the weight of the box the contents may still be present. It’s a gorgeous objects, so much more than this amateur photographer was able to capture. The beads are 19th century, most likely before, with wonderful, coveted and cool polkadots. The, almost two days work, is our hand woven to perfection.
One of a kind
Charm box: 1 5/8 x 1 3/8 x 3/16″
Cord length: 24.75″
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.
