This vibrant necklace is very cultural. The red coral circle beads give just enough color and pop to complete any attire. The origin of the word Coral comes from the Greek word Korallion and Latin word Coralium, which both derived from the early Hebrew goral meaning “small pebble”. The white and brown eye beads are made of bone and come from Kenya. This design is created through a dying method better known as “batik”, which is a wax relief process. The wound globe beads throughout this piece are handmade individually through the “Lost Wax process” technique. The beads measure approximately 13-14mm in diameter. Along the side of the necklace is the black African vinyl bead that is found in Ghana and Nigeria. They are often worn as waist beads. Connecting in the middle of this necklace is the handmade Sun Baule Brass Beads from Ghana that are easily identified by the Adinkra sun and moon symbols.
This black and cream himba necklace can be worn multiple ways: you can have the closure to the back of your neck or adjust to show in the front. The pattern shows the detail of this piece. It is definitely a great fashion statement!
