Black and White Batik Bone Necklace

Jan's Description

Black and white is so in style now. I found the black and white beads on a trip to South Africa.  They are batik-dyed bone, a technique popular there. Coconut shell discs, lightweight vintage plastic black beads, and a large bone bead complete the design of this bold necklace.

Necklace measures 21” long.

This necklace is lovingly handmade by me and is one of a kind.
