Necklaces and Bracelets

Traditionally necklaces and bracelets had such value and meaning that they were used as
money
in some parts of Africa. Today the value is found mostly in the creative use of various
materials, the unique style and bold expressiveness of each piece.


I particularly love the colors of the Zulu beadwork bracelets which enliven any outfit I've worn,
as do the Batik bone pieces with their striking brown and black and white etching.



Here area few of my favorites:
