Jewels designed this piece with the colors that reminds her of the Plains beaded jewelry. The long faience beads are ancient Egyptian and the others are European made glass beads that were also traded in the Americas as well as Africa and Asia. We finished the necklace on our hand woven cord.
One of a kind
Average faience bead: 5/8 x just under 1/8″
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.
