19th century, Tibet
Jewels collected these toggles many years ago.  She was never able to get a large number of them and in fact this is the second she has been able to find in the last couple of years.  The shell has a gorgeous patina and the feel of it is like glass.  It hangs pendant on our superbly hand woven cord.

One of a kind

Shell toggle: 3 x 2.5″
Cord length: 20″

 

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 or him.
