Coin And Green Glass Earrings

Coin And Green Glass Earrings

Description

Mid 20th century, Berber, Morocco

Berber jewelry is money.  It is made from old currencies into beautiful adornments and it is traded like money.  Here is a lovely pair of Moroccan coins on which  a talented Berber set green glass (for protection against the evil eye) and made hasps so these can be worn as headdress charms, earrings, necklace charms.  Jewels, just like the Berber, re-purposed these with sterling French hooks for earrings.

With links: 1 5/8 x 1″

$135.00
