The gorgeous cowries with their colored wear and seductive shapes are African trade pieces, as currency has always been a fascination of Jewels.  The silver and enamel charm is from Southern Morocco once worn by a gorgeous and seductive Berber woman-probably.  The genius design on the hand woven cord and Italian leather is a product of a lifetime living in far away places where beauty is less dictated by media and belongings, body adornment, are not destined for land fills.
