Description

Sara Jewelry Design. Another dramatic new beauty for my Kenyan Collection. This unisex 20 inch overall necklace is a dramatic combination of reds, blacks, browns, and gold accents. The center of the design is a four and 1/4 inch segment composed of an enormous 31x25mm batiked bone drum bead, capped with 3mm round gold-plated brass beads. Linked to the bone drum on either side, I have added 25mm puffed coin carnelian beads, also capped with the 3mm gold-plated rounds. The carnelian beads are shank wrapped on their outer ends.

The outer portions of the necklace I made from 2mm black cotton cordage, the whipped ends of which are fitted through the shank wraps on the carnelian beads and then are capped with gold-plated crimp covers. I used the same method at the termini to close the necklace and fitted it with a gold-plated trigger clasp and jump ring.

I will ship this your way the next business day via insured USPS first class mail with a tracking ID number. If you need expedited shipping, drop me a note first with your zip code and I'll get you a shipping quote.

A word or two about batiked bone beads from Africa: All of the bone beads in my Kenyan Collection pieces originated in Kenya and came to me from the inventory of a life-long friend and neighbor. When he retired from jewelry making and returned to his homeland, I was blessed with acquiring a large selection of these treasures.

Batiking is often achieved with varying pigments, including coffee, tea, charcoal, ink and so on. Because it i s not always possible to know what has been used in the dyeing process, I routinely seal the beads to make them colorfast. This is particularly important in larger drum-style beads that are filled with charred wood. I have sealed this big drum focal bead with multiple dipped coats of polyurethane varnish.

I requested a bracelet and earrings to go with a necklace I had purchased previously from this artist. She made the extra effort for this to be possible and I could not be more delighted. There is no comparison between handing a piece of jewelry to a cashier and having something custom made for you arriving in the mail, especially when the artist is as pleasant, helpful and talent as she. Definitely a favorite of mine!
