Hi, thatís a beautiful piece!
the pierced hamsas are a typical Tunisian design. Another ingredient of the fragrant beads is ambergris from the belly of the sperm whale. I bought some beads in Tunisia in 1996 and traded a few with the Oppers for their glass beads that I treasure.
And by the way, the fragrant beads that I have are still aromatic after 22 years!
Enjoy, Paula E
