Frosted beads made in Ghana of recycled glass graduate gracefully to form a bib-style design. The three strands are engineered in place with stations of silver metal Heishi beads made in Kenya. The green disk and tubular varietal glass beads are artfully placed to give a crisp contrast to the frosty beads. Reminiscent of ancient Egyptian collars.
Designed and handmade in Cape Town by Guidemore Chigama. Trained as an engineer Guidemore is self-taught and produces necklaces laden with new patterns, colors and designs of his own.
