A beautiful, old, silver enamel pendant from Tiznit, Southern Morocco nestles like a United Nations diplomat between two antique little chevron trade beads, circa late 1800’s, from Venice, Italy. Two decent sized chunks of copal Amber, from Morocco, circa 1920, bring up the colour, then two beautiful old silver beads from Morocco, before launching into a selection of high quality 16mm lapis beads from Afghanistan.
Necklace ends with a sterling silver clasp.
Strung on sturdy waxed cotton.

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 story, 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.
