The beads, so painstakenly woven on our cord are African glass trade beads. The central glass amulet is token acquired upon a visit to Mecca. These charms are usually red. This piece is so beautifully incised with gold text; it has a lyrical look and feels happy.

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.
