The Bold River Naga Tribe Vintage Necklace
This long, multi-strand necklace of brass beads in different shapes and sizes is a beautifully earthy, vintage piece that is also quite modern and wearable. Five strands of oval, round and tube beads of brass are strung on hemp cord, with a flowing "liquid" feel to it. Simple enough to work with other layered pieces or on its own.
- There is a tiny palmette "tag" adorned in a kind of yoni shape that adds to the power and mystery of this piece.
- Necklace measures approximately 30" long and easily slips over the head-- it has no clasp
- This is a fine example of Naga bead work which is part of the tribal identity of the Naga people of North East India and Nagaland
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
