Uptown Tribal Trade Bead Choker Necklace. No 5. 18 ins.
Yes, it is surprising but these are all trade beads. The Copper Hishi is from the Giriama tribe in Kenya. A friend of mine has been importing strands from there for decades. The Glass beads are not rare but I love the soft colors and it will make a pretty pleasant Summer necklace!
The little spacers are lead safe pewter and the necklace is strung on 1.5mm Stretch Magic.
I made the Sterling Silver clasp to keep the necklace from having a modern look. This latest collection of Uptown Tribal necklaces is pretty androgynous! Length 18 ins.
