19th – early 20th century, Berber, Morocco
The Berber people of North Africa would seal prayers or poems in these beautifully decorated silver and brass boxes and wear them for protection- and beauty of course.  Jewels designed this piece as radiant protection on our hand woven cord.  In fact, it’s pretty magical that she was able to find this group of charm boxes.

One of a kind

Necklace length: 18.75″
Largest box: 1 3/8 x 1 1/4 x 1/4″

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.
