Product Information: This elegant and striking handmade necklace centres a hand-decorated tubular bead recycled from a Kenyan ‘sufuria’ (aluminium cooking pot), flanked by Malian frosted glass beads and dark brown coconut shell discs. These are suspended from a long string of white Samburu glass beads punctuated by Giriama (coastal Kenya) rings. The Samburu are pastoralists and in Samburu colour symbolism, white is the colour of milk, and therefore purity. Clasp: silver plated trigger catch.
Product care: avoid getting wet.
In line with the environmental ethic of my business, I use recycled/ reused packaging where possible.
Price includes P&P.
