Possibly Olmec, Mexio (900 – 600 BCE)
IGNORE the sill images. This gorgeous anceint bead looks like ice. It is impossible for this amateure to photograph but not everything is photogenic. Of course the cord is our work we do in our Marrakech studio.
One of a kind
Bead: just under 1. 5 x 1.25″
Necklace length: 18″
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).
