Description

This necklace is from Africa, but don't I know where. Ostrich shell beads originated in Kenya eons ago, but they are widespread. They are likely to have been made by hand locally. The glass beads are probably European in origin. There is one white bead among the cobalt blue beads.

The necklace is terrific. It is a simple design, but it just looks great. Great colors, surfaces and proportion. The edges of the ostrich shell are worn smooth and have a lovely patina of wear.

The strand is finished with a simple knot. Stringing feels secure.

The necklace is 26" long.
