Chevron Bead Bracelet



Product ID: 25712 Category: Tags: , , , ,

19th century or earlier.
The Chevron beads were first made by the Venetians in the 16th century and  primarily exported to Africa where they are still very desirable.  This particular group is sublime; each distinct, restrained, rare and elegant.  We have woven cord between the beads. This is for a larger wrist.

One of a kind

Longest bead: just over .75 x .25″
Bracelet length: 8″

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 bracelet transforms more than just a bracelet.  It becomes her or him.
