18th -19th century African glass and clay trade beads and an Ancient Egyptian Faience bead. This adorable central bead may be an effigy of a perfume bottle that also was typically worn as an amulet in ancient times. We finished this piece with our hand weaving of the cord and coin closure.
One of a kind
Central bead: 1 x .25″
Length of shorter strand: 19″
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.
