African Black and Red Beads with Elephant Necklace

Details

Love these elephants - especially when they are in a handcrafted handmade artisan necklace made with handmade and hand painted beads in red, black and a little white. These are authentic African beads that are made by women in Kenya. The beads are separated by vintage squares of lucite and red glass seed beads. The necklace is 17.5 inches long with a 1.5 inch extension to accommodate different sizes and needs. All finishings are antiqued silver as is the great large lobster claw clasp.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

When I found these elephants, I knew that I had to make something with them - I love elephants. Little did I know at the time, that they came from a women's co-operative in Kenya where the beads were hand formed and hand painted in a fair trade business. So this necklace is loaded with benefits - if you buy it you get a great piece of jewelry and you help women in a very poor country. What more could you want???

Materials Used

Hand made beads, vintage lucite, silver plate, sterling silver, glass seed beads

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.
