Unusual necklace from Morocco with coral, and silver beads. The pendants are??silver Torah pointers, usually used on the end of a stick when reading from the Torah from right to left, so as not to touch the print in the Jewish holy book. So there’s a possibility that these are Yemen pieces, as the Jewish silver smiths came to Morocco when they fled Yemen after 1948. Fifteen pieces between beads of truly gorgeous old coral, age indeterminate, and old heavy silver beads from the Moroccan silversmiths.
End with silver hook and eye clasp.
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. Dings and dents are part of the journeys of these pieces, and add to the charm. ??You will be the new custodian of a piece of wearable art, that has its own story. Imagine if these beads could speak.
