Polka Dots And Whiskey Trade Glass



Product ID: 23226 Category: Tags: , , , , ,

18th century Italian made polka dot beads adored and traded in Africa and a 19th- early 20th century central whiskey colored glass bead from Mali.
What a gem!  We wove the cord between each bead making it a more elegant piece as well as to protect each bead.

One of a kind

Length: 17”
Mali bead: 1”

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.
