19th century
Coral in just about every continent is valued both  for its beauty and as a currency.  The glass version, trade beads, are also collected and valued like coral but at times are more affordable- and just as beautiful.  Jewels designed this strand to reflect the pure quality and bohemian aesthetic of the material.  The colors of these beads are exactly that of varying corals.  They are wonderfully worn with the kind of patina we love.  We wove the cord between each bead giving it a bit of refinement as well as to protect these lovely beads.

One of a kind

Average bead: 1 x .25″
Necklace length: 22.5″

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.
