Djenne, Central Mali
Some of the most beautiful old African artifacts and art come from this region.  This very rare bead is one such piece of the most beautiful blue.  It is on our finest hand woven cord, an art in itself too.

One of a kind.

The bead: almost square .5″; 3/16″ deep
Necklace length: 23″

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.
