Waceera is a name that means “the wanderer” which encapsulates the nomadic vibe captured by this multi-dimensional piece. This Waceera Necklace has a really fun flair and is definitely unique!
It features a Rasta inspired tassel which is sourced from Gambia. The asymmetric design provides visual interest. Stunning red sponge Jasper gives this necklace an exotic and dramatic flair.
The West African beads are made in Krobo, in the eastern region of Ghana, using a method that has been implemented for centuries. It involves baking fragments of recycled glass in moulds that are lined with a mixture of kaolin and water. The bead hole is made using a cassava plant stem that burns up during firing. Once cooled, they are washed and rubbed against a stone to polish them. They are then individually hand painted, adding to the uniqueness of each bead. Krobo glass beads have been used in ceremonies of birth, coming of age, marriage, and death for over 400 years in West Africa. They are separated by Aja bead spacers and African vulcanised rubber discs.
This medley of beads gives the Waceera Necklace a unique flair that is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. It is finished with a handmade brass clasp and chain made by Kenyan artisans. The extra chain enables you to fasten the necklace according to your desired length. Finally, it is completed with a chic gold plated SHIKHAZURI charm and a nugget of sponge Jasper.
