Tribal amulet necklace - African silver coin beads in primitive copper box


A primitive copper box, torch-fired to give it a beautiful distressed and aged patina serves as a vessel for three African elongated silver coin beads stacked one on top of the other and held in place with oxidized copper wire threaded through them and around the copper box.

The necklace is created from a memory wire core (strong and flexible, holding its collar shape on the neck) sheathed in tube of dark, burnt orange sari silk, coated to ensure it is harder and hardier than in its natural textile form. Balled copper wire is wrapped around the ends and middle sections and Ethiopian white metal prayer beads serve as an additional adornment.

Around 19 inches (48 1/2 cm) end to end. The focal is around 1 3/4 inches (4 1/2cm) from top to bottom. Closes with a hand forged copper hook at the back of the neck.
