18th- 19th century.
Jewels is able to make about one of these a year. Each glass trade bead is a gem, you might think it’s candy, and the silver coin turned headdress charms too are swoon worthy. It’s a whimsical piece to wear with casual ts and shirts or dress it up with a LBD.
A Jewels standard edition design; no two exact
Largest coin headdress charm: just short 1 1/2 x 7/8″
Necklace length: 17.25″
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.
