Tonosi Shell Tooth



Product ID: 21840 Category: Tags: , , , ,

300 – 550 CE, Tonosi, Panama
The amulet came from the Pre Colombian period in Panama and was worn on the body, strung with cloth or leather.  We put it on our hand woven cord.  This necklace would look great on a man as well. Jewels found two of these pieces suggesting these were probably ritual amulets.

One of a kind

Amulet: 2 x 1/4 x 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.
