This beautiful and unique Kabyle amulet is handmade by the Kabyle (Berber) people of Algeria. The artisans are mainly using hand and traditional tools, it could take them hours to make one single Jewel. It is made with passion and love to the culture. The artisans are only using pure products such as the mediterranean red coral and silver 950.

It can be used as a brooch and it is called in Berber "Avrim". Avrim is a jewel used in the past to make a dress out of a single piece of fabric. It is fixed or tied above the shoulders and around the waist to make it look like a dress. It was not fashion at that time, but that was all they could figure out to cover themselves with, they were very smart anyway.

Size: 75mm High x 40mm Wide

Weight:9.1 grammes
