SOLD JMAJ13 Afghan Embroidery Pendant with chain. Silverplated pendant & chain, resin, embroidered textile fragment.
These silver-plated jewellery pieces contain fragments of original Afghan embroidery, sourced by Janet & Craig while working with Afghan refugees in the wild North Western Frontier of Pakistan. The original fabric made up items of clothing which were probably sold by refugees, desperate for money to live on. Craig & Janet found fragments in a shop, & decided to upcycle them, to honour the women whose work this represents.
The silverplated pendant comes with an 18" "snake" chain. Due to the handmaking process & thickness of the embroidery, minute air bubbles may be visible in the resin when held up to the eye. These bubbles are however not visible to the normal viewer.
