This Guidemore original is an artful use of bead types in a predominantly blue color way. The large round blue beads are handmade re-cycled bottle glass from Africa, made in Ghana. The hand painted tubular glass trade beads of vibrant blue and sunny yellow are sheer magic mixed with the colorful seed beads. The small silver metal heishi beads used throughout the necklace are from Kenya. This statement necklace is a contemporary tribal conversation piece.
Designed and hand made 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.
