19th century or before, Africa
The pictures don’t do this African trade shell justice! The shell has such gorgeous patina and warmth yet it glows in clarity. It’s an heirloom object, bohemian and chic.
One of a kind
Shell: 1.5 x 1.75″

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.
