Hippo Tooth Necklace

Treasured

When Portuguese traders visited Africa in 15th century, they gave coral beads like these to tribal chiefs who treasured them. Vicky Chignall’s hippo tooth necklace features a Nigerian arca shell (the "hippo tooth") and hand-carved black horn discs from Nigerian women's belts. This exquisite arca shell necklace is highlighted by Sudanese trade beads, brass beads, and ostrich egg shell discs from Kenya. The piece is about 18” around and closes with an “S” hook.
