A collection of off white coral beads are separated by hand knotting, off which I’ve hung an old silver granulated bead from Yemen, and a really interesting jade pendant with a conch design on one side and the beginnings of the Om symbol on the reverse. It looks as if the artist changed his mind about the design, flipped over the jade, and went with the conch. Funky! Ends with a Dalmatian jasper carved toggle pendant.
As with all my creations, this is a unique, individual, one off that took me hours and hours to get just right. I collect all my components by scrabbling in souks and hessian bags and dusty shops for the most unique treasures my dealers can part with. All my pieces have little dings, dents, and signs of wear from their global journeys and age, which add to their charm. You will be the new custodian of a piece of wearable art, that has its own story. Imagine if these beads could speak.
