Protective Red Glass Charm And Black Beads



Product ID: 24762 Category: Tags: , , , ,

19th – early 20th century, Souss-Massa region, Morocco
An old and worn silver charm with red glass set at the center, a classic among the Ida Ou Nadif, an Amazigh people, is a protective charm, warding off the evil eye.  Jewels paired this amulet with antique black glass trade bead and our finest hand-woven cord between each.  Just so beautiful.

One of a kind

Charm: 1.25 x 1.25″
Necklace length: 17.75″


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.
