Part of my new Silk Road Collection. The Silk Road was a series of trade and cultural transmission routes that were central to cultural interaction through regions of the Asian continent connecting the West and East by linking traders, merchants, pilgrims, monks, soldiers, nomads, and urban dwellers from China and India to the Mediterranean Sea during various periods of time. Pieces in this collection pay homage to the ancient road whereby cultures blended and philosophies passed on. I've used beads and focals from many of the countries along the route...such as China, the Indian subcontinent, Africa,Persia, Europe, and Arabia. I hope you like it.

Antique silver telsum prayer box beads come from Ethiopia where they were tribally worn and made by the Oromo tribe as protective amulets to ward off the evil eye, promote fertility and to protect against the powers of the crescent moon. The pendants are "Ethiopian Silver", they do contain some silver but I don't know the exact percentage. I've strung this little amulet from a gunmetal rosary chain which matches the color and vibe beautifully. Sterling silver lobster claw clasp finishes the piece.

Please keep in mind, this beads were made with old tools and techniques and show some normal imperfection which I think adds to their soulfulness and charm.


Total length: 16.5 inches
Telsum Pendant is .75 across
