Rendille Bead and Conus Necklace

300.00

Rendille beads are beautiful and rare from the Nomadic tribe of the Rendille people in Kenya.  They have unusual coloring depending on the light-- a beautiful neutral reddish clay color offers a pop of color on a simple outfit or blends in beautifully when a quieter neutral statement is needed. They are alternated with small white spacer beads carved from ostrich eggshell and accented with antique silver beads.

The Conus shell is from a predatory snail found on the Nigerian and Cape coast of South Africa, it is wrapped with a silver edge.

This necklace measures approximately 18 inches in circumference with the conus shell pendant measuring approximately 2 inches in length.
