SYMBOLISM & STORY
This bold African amber bead necklace marries with upcycled cow horn beads from Kenya. Both of these striking bead types have a beautiful warm orange to yellow hue. The use of faux amber in jewellery making is a traditional practice among the tribes of Northern Africa, where true amber is scarce; these beads come from the Atlas Mountains and are sourced in Morocco itself. Their age is evident from the groves and irregular surface, and is also a testament of their authentic individuality.
Wear the Jwahir Necklace high up on the neck like a choker, and be transformed into the golden woman of the moment when you step into the room – wear her, own her, be her!
