Islamic 17th Century Gold Coin And Pink



Product ID: 25731 Category: Tags: , , , , , ,

Jewels collects these old gold coins when possible as they are scarce and costly.  The combination of the pink glass beads and weighty gold coin is so sweet and pure, worn as the Berber would.   All the the things we love, collect, trade and find beautiful belong together.  The glass bead closure is also so wonderful, depite the terrible image!  It is clear glass, hand faceted and looks like ice.

Coin: 11/16″
Necklace length: 20″

A note about our woven cords.  We weave these by hand, every one of them.   Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us.  The work is labor intensive.  When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace.  It becomes her.
