Mauritanian Shell Simple Beauty

19th century, Mauritania, NW Africa
The pictures don’t do this shell justice!  It’s the simplicity and bright white.  It glows crisp and white, qualities now difficult to find in these old shells once worn as hair ornaments.  The shell needs nothing more but our chic hand woven cord

One of a kind

Shell: 1.25 x .5″
Necklace length: 25.5″

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 or him.
