Nigerian bronze, phenolic resin, mauritaian shell, red heart and copper woven bead necklace
This unique necklace is comprised of vintage Nigerian bronze, phenolic resin, mauritaian shell, red heart, and handwoven copper beads. Copper and clay beads are used as spacers. I woven the copper beads using a basket weaving technique to match the feel of these wonderful African trade beads. A very pleasing mixture of trade beads.
The Nigerian bronze bead is from the 1600's and beautifully decorated with a nice patina. Phenolic resin - sometimes called African amber- was made in the early 1900's because of the difficulty getting amber. Mauritaian shell beads were worn as hair ornaments and are from the mid 1900's. The red hearts from early 1900's.
length - 21" with 2" extension
clasp - swivel lobster
