African Inspiration

About this design:

I've had this pendant for a while now, however, I'm not sure where it came from originally. It had a design on it that seemed like it could be African or something similar. I had the Sandcast African beads that thought they went well together. I like how the colors and textures pair in the necklace it seems Earthy to me.


Sandcast tube and round beads, natural tube lacing, horn beads, bone beads
