19th – mid 20th century, Africa.
These anklet shells, sliver cuts, are the rarest of all to find.
Jewels used her entire stash that took two years to collect for this necklace. The charms too, her top pieces, are disappearing fast in the market.
It’s a stunning work of art, that to wear feels like a gift.
Not that this piece requires anything more but because we love body adornment try layering it with a simple white beaded necklace (also shown on the model in the last image.)
One of a kind
Necklace length: 19.5′
Center glass charm: 1.25″ not counting dangle
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.
