Black and White Handmade Kenyan Beads and Elephant Necklace

Details

Elephants - my favorite animal and tough to find for jewelry so I was really excited to find these beauties. The hand made, black and white necklace is made from handmade, hand painted and hand formed beads from a fair trade cooperative in Kenya. The necklace is 17.5 inches long and has a 1.5 inch extension so that it fits a variety of necks and occasions. The beads are joined by black obsidian beads. All finishings are antiqued silver plate as is the large lobster claw clasp. This is a great necklace that I know you will enjoy...and if you love elephants, you will LOVE it.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I love elephants and was so excited to find these fantastic hand made, painted and formed Kenyan beads from a Fair Trade co-operative. So, not only do these make me happy - they really help the Kenyan woman who make them. The beads are obviously hand made because they show allot of diversity even in the same beads and that's one of the reasons that I love them so much. I can do symmetry but I much prefer, diversity and these beads are awash in diversity. There are also necklaces here with red elephants...but I am partial to the black.

More Info

I use only 49 strand stainless steel stringing wire in my necklaces, it is the best and most flexible in the market. I also only use sterling silver, or 14K gold filled, 2.5 MM twisted crimp beads for my wire. They are longer and to me, they seem to hold better.

I am always talking about my "large lobster claw clasps" - I live in Phoenix...allot of my jewelry is sold in shops here and there are allot of retirees here and they don't like fiddling around with little clasps - so I found these and they are almost 1/2 inch in length...there is something to hold onto. I can get them in 3/4 and 1 inch, but I don't think that the added size and subsequent cost is necessary for comfort and ease of use.
