19th century, Morocco
Not all shells are alike. Look closely at how gorgeous this piece is, like a modernist painting; abstract design but with intention. It has the perfect wear of time and use on the body. Jewels had the talented Khadija in Marrakech weave the cord and then stitch Italian leather over the cord. This is 2 days work.
One of a kind
