19th century, Berber, Morocco
This stunning amulet is pure magic. It is a model of a tool but not used as such because the material is not meant for that use. It is what ancient people have made for thousands of years to represent the essential objects of life and worn as protection. The beads are also mother of pearl and are traditional prayer beads. Try layering with some more mojo, silver and gold charms and amulets

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.
