Ethiopian Silver Telsum Necklace - Brown Leather Cord
These Ethiopian silver prayer box pendants were traditionally worn by Ethiopian Orthodox Christians to ward off the evil eye. The telsum hangs on an 16 inch brown leather cord finished with sterling components.
We have not polished this vintage piece, it is just how we found it in Ethiopia.
There are lovely pictures of Telsum in one of my favorite books showing African beads and jewelry, "Africa Adorned" by Angela Fisher.
All SilverChicks jewelry arrives in gift packaging.
