Wearable Art... Moroccan inspired Jewellery

Wearable Art

'Rissani' Necklace and Earrings


As my inspiration for this set I used a beautiful piece of polished rock from the Tahiri Fossil Museum, Rissani, Morocco.



I used silk yarn to wrap cotton jersey material to make the necklace and wrapped aluminum wire to make the tendrils and the earrings.


The earrings measure 5 cms. from hook. The hooks are silver plated, nickle free.


The necklace measures 51cms. end to end and is fastened with a silver plated hook and ring.
