OOAK African Vintage Teardrop Berber Pendant Found In Morocco Low Silver Alloy Red Glass Beads

This is a very traditional vintage Berber focal bead most likely made in or around the late 70's. The Berber's are a Nomadic people living in the Northwest deserts of Africa living out of tents and travelling on foot and camel. Imagine creating jewelry in primitive conditions with no electricity and with whatever supplies might be on hand!!

With a bit of rubbing I got a slight bit of black on my finger, I suspect there MIGHT be a bit of silver in this piece though very little.

Many pieces made out in the desert are created from whatever metals the Nomads can find...old shell casings and bits of old tanks and crashed planes from the days of "The Desert Fox"...Rommel leading his troops in the WWll campaign across Africa in combat with American troops led by General Patton. A little factoid: General Patton trained his troops just an hour south of where I live, on the border of California/Arizona/Nevada in a small settlement that goes by the name of CalNevAri.

Back to the doubt the maker would have liked some prized coral for this piece and settled for red glass that is very similar in color to old un-dyed coral. This would easily blend in beaded with some old African beads and bits of coral. Or simply slip it on a silver chain or black cord and voila' !! A lovely tribal piece to wear!!

Length: 2 inches long not including the bead dangles,full length is 3 inches.
Width: 1 1/2 inches
Circumference: 3 1/2 inches
Weight: .83 ounce

The three dangles at the bottom have loops which would allow you to add more beads or charms if so desired. Let your imagination run free with this piece!! The possibilities are endless!!!
