Rare Berber Charm

Rare Berber Charm

Description

19th century, Berber, Morocco

This so very sweet piece is for those who really get it, get the traditions of tribal and ethnic adornment.  The charm is an enigmatic hand made niello etched piece that was part of a great collection of body adornments.  It was worn for years and maybe given to another girl who repaired it and added her hasp, making this piece even more charming.  The cord is Jewels signature work, so finely woven that it takes us a day’s work to make.  The tiny silver beads are antique Mauritanian.  Also notice, like all of Jewels’ work it is finished beautifully, this with a 17th century silver Moroccan coin.

One of a kind

Charm: 1.75 x .75″

Hand woven cord: 23.5″
