Ida Charms

Ida Charms

Description

19th century, Ida Ou Nadif, Morocco

These niello etched charms are favorites!  Jewels collects them as long as she can find the older hand made ones for the people.  That’s real folk art.  She had our silversmith make the tops with sterling granulation, a style she did many years ago.  This writer has begged her to bring them back.  We also restored the charms in Jewels’ signature style of riveted sterling.

A note about the image:  The image does not show the true contrast of the black and silver.  The niello etched technique makes the black areas truly opaque and the silver, as expected is more luminescent.

One of a kind

Charms: 7/8″
