19th century and earlier
African glass trade beads mixed with some Mali stone and ceramic beads make for a lovely quirky and earthy necklace.  The cord is beautifully hand woven between each bead, elevating each.

One of a kind

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.
