Put the adventure on! I made this statement necklace around the most beautiful enamelled illustrations by 2moiselles. The African safari theme is all over this piece, from the woman in the middle with a headdress of turquoise chips, to the leopard print hairy leather, to the variety of fair trade handmade recycled glass beads made by tribes in Ghana and Morocco. I chose to use a beautiful metal component as a base and dangles (from Turkey), recycled silk fibers (remnants of sari silk industry in India), more ceramic, glass and wood beads. The necklace is backed with metallic snake print leather. And there is a lion hanging at the bottom!
|Size / Weight
The front measures 7 1/8″ (180mm) (including drop) and a maximum 4 1/4″ (102mm) in width. It hangs on a row of various beads about 16" (405mm) in length and it's about 2" (51mm) adjustable. It weighs 150g. It is a little bit heavy because of the many glass beads!
I do my best to provide the most accurate information, both with the images presented and the descriptions.
I do not know the exact chemical composition of my supplies and I do not take responsibility for any allergies or bad reactions on skin. I will however answer honestly and to the best of my knowledge any questions or concerns you might have, so please ask before purchasing. If I write "non-toxic" or "lead-free" is because the supplier mentioned it in their description. I do not take responsibility for their information.

|Care & Maintenance
Do not let perfume or cosmetics come in direct contact with the beads and components. While I choose my material carefully and I try to provide the best quality, if not properly taken care of, all beads will change or lose colour or shine in time if exposed to chemicals.
Handle the fragile components with care especially the clasp area. Be gentle! Because I use lots of fragile components made of clay or porcelain, I advise to keep the jewellery in their own boxes out of harm's way. I do consider repairs, but subject to certain conditions.
