The focal beads of this Tribal and largely organic necklace are rare large and beautiful red Spiny Oyster, highly prized by natives of Central and South America as well as our own Native Americans. They are combined with horn beads from Africa as well as two large handsome patterned brown wooden beads, red Mountain Coral glass, sterling silver and Vulcanite, both red and black, and little striped African trade beads. The clasp is sterling silver. This is a striking 19″ necklace, the only one in the world! I love its richness and variety of patterns!
Only one available!
The Design Gallery comes to you full of old and new wonders meeting in all sorts of renewed patterns and shapes. There is history here as well as contemporary creativity. Ancient, vintage or present, all these handmade and natural items, many of them found on a beach, in my vintage collection or in an artist's studio, all come together in this Gallery. The provenance of many of these items have long since vanished into the past. They are often repurposed into other designs, and all are waiting to be refound by my customer friends who enjoy these wonders as much as I enjoy bringing them together into unique one of a kind treasures.
Necklaces seem to make a statement. We wear them to identify ourselves, to display how we feel, who we are, and we have so many choices! Just enjoy!
