Mizoram Amber Necklace



Product ID: 23603 Category: Tags: , , , ,

19th century, Mizoram, India or Western Burma
The cylindrical amber, sometimes called Burmite, was worn by the Mizo women of Mizoram, formerly part of India’s Assam state.  The beads were often strung stacked.  Jewels made this piece a lighter more modern style for a woman or a man on our beautiful hand woven cord.

One of a knd

Average bead: 1 3/4 x 5/8″
Shorter length: 31″

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.
