Early 20th century, Tiznit, Souss-Massa Region, Morocco
Maybe you’ve seen the Berber Museum in the Majorelle gardens in Marrakech? If not, you should! Yves St. Laurent collected material like this bead and his collection is held in this fabulous museum. It was a traditional style, an example of their exceptional talent. The Tiznit Berber are known as the jewelers of Morocco . Jewels was able to collect a fair amount of these some 20 years ago, a bygone era. She saved a couple of these beauties and they are perfect for her new leather line. The Italian leather is perfectly matched to the bead and masterfully stitched by Khadija in our Marrakech studio. Together with the other similar, but not exact, shown in this listing, you will be set to be just, just chic
This necklace, and YSL of course, plainly said, are tres chic.
