Spirit of Africa Necklace | Ancient Treasures Collection
An enormous variety of beads have been found for centuries in Africa. Some are made from organic materials such as shells, bones, nuts, and stones; others made of glass on the continent or imported from Europe.
I pulled together a mixture of my glass beads with other old and new beads to create The Spirit of Africa Necklace. Different textures add excitement, and the bead I made for the center is a glass painting all on its own.
The Spirit of Africa Necklace is 28 inches long, and the center drop adds an additional three inches. Yes, it is dramatic. Imagine how any plain outfit from jeans and a big top to a stylish black dress will be transformed into something unforgettable with The Spirit of Africa necklace. Do you dare? Yes you do, 'cause you are remarkable, one of a kind, just like this necklace.
The Spirit of Africa closes with a lobster claw clasp, and is enhanced with old African brass money rings, ancient Roman glass donuts, wire and copper. (Learn more about the clasp here.) This necklace will act as a neutral, and will go with almost any color.
