This piece is made from simple plain gray beads woven together into multiple layers.
The pendant is traditionally made from carved wood or bone.
This type of necklace was believed to bring luck or fertility.
My African collection includes this hand crafted line of multi strand, multi colored fine Maasai beads necklace. The beads themselves are hand made as well as the necklaces. No one product is exactly the same as the next making them intriguingly unique. The Maasai people take great pride in the ornamental culture, every part of it and every color has a deep meaning. They take inspiration from the environment and the elements. These pieces bring out the organic elegance that comes with culture handed down through generations with a modern twist.
