19th century, Africa
A beautiful perfect littles shell with all the age and patina fitting of a piece of currency cum body adornment of 100+ years. The crystal glass bead adds casual elegance. We made the finest hand woven cord, a work of art too.
One of a kind
Shell: 1.25 x .75″
Hand woven cord: 28.25″
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.
