Heirloom Copper Bell And Bead Charm

Heirloom Copper Bell And Bead Charm

Description

19th century or earlier, Central America

The green stone bead is most likely pre Columbian, from the Maya culture and it is possible the bell too is also just as old.  The two were collected and naively bound with wire.  It’s a perfect example of adornments made by the people for the people: folk art.  We made the finely woven cord, 3 day’s work.

One of a kind

Bell and Bead charm: 2 1/4 x 1 7/8″

Necklace length: 28.5″
