Granite Earrings Kate's Private Collection


I made these earrings in  about 1982. Because the beads were made in Djenne, Mali between 200BC and 300AD, I had to have a really good collection of the beads to be able to match them for two earrings. These earrings have also been drawn as an illustration in my book "How to be Successful in the Bead Jewelry Business".

So I tried to keep them together but one can wait too long to let go of the treasures in one's creative history and all of a sudden after one goes, no-one knows the connection! (It's ok, I'm still well and strong). Anyway, There will never be another pair. Historic beads and wearable. The book is offered separately.
