Berber Silver Tab Necklace

Berber Silver Tab Necklace

Description

Mid 20th century, Ida Ou Nadif, Morocco

Classic niello etched silver tab charms, double strand beauty. Once upon a time more abundant, the chic jewelry among Berber women, these are now harder find, as all good folkart is.   This is a very lovely group, nice and petit, naive renderings.  The necklace is a fabulous weight, perfect weaving with just a tiny bit of color in the 19th century European glass trade beads.

 

A note about our woven cords.  We weave these by hand, every one of them.   When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer and hangs at it should.

 

One of a kind

 

Average charm: 1 1/2” x 2”
Length, 16 1/2”
