Ethiopian telsum and silver bead choker necklace | African evil eye amulet


Boho choker necklace with a lovely distressed Ethiopian telsum amulet and small silver metal African beads strung on a tempered steel wire.

Telsum amulets are created and worn as protective amulets against the evil eye. They are part of a rich tradition of triangular shaped amulets; representing the age-old concept of the three and, in this case, a geometric transformation of the eye.

This aged telsum joins small Ethiopian silver metal alloy beads, equally organic and distressed. They are strung on tempered steel memory wire, which holds its coil shape, closing with a hand made stainless steel hook at the back of the neck. The charm is a Mexican milagros. The distressed patina on this piece is natural aged, preserved with a micro crystalline wax.

A little over 16 inches (41 cm) end to end. The telsum is 1 1/4 inches (3 cm) from top to bottom not including the bales. Great for layering with your longer boho or tribal pieces or wearing on its own.
