The headdress charm is mid 20th century, probably from Tetouan in northern Morocco.  This stunning piece came from a Marrakech art dealear’s collection.  The work, all hand made of course, is so crisp and well executed.  The details of the hamsa at the top, the incising, shape and the radiant lines around the glass evoke such nobility yet beautifully ethnographic.  The glass at the center and the hamsas all serve as protective elements.  Jewels created this new design of incorporating our hand stiched leather and sterling chain.  Killer!

One of a kind

Headdress charm (including dangling hamsas): 4 1/8 x 2 3/8″

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.
