Going Tribal Necklace

About this design:

I absolutely love tribal jewelry especially African so I decided to try my hand at doing some and this was one of the results. It is such a statement piece. It turned out better than I hoped.


African mudcloth batik beads, 20mm black coco saucer beads, Bali silver cone beads, Bali silver toggle, Bali silver spacers, copper spacers and the pendant piece was made by the Wodaabe tribe in Niger, Africa.
