Boho Chic African Trade Beads and Cross Necklace

Jan's Description

Double strands of colorful glass vintage African trade beads and a large cross come together to create a trendy Boho Chic look. Fun necklace to wear casual. Necklace is 18" long with 1-1/2" extension. Cross is 2-1/2" in diameter.

This necklace is one of a kind and lovingly handmade by me in my home studio in San Francisco. Most of my creations are a mix of antique, vintage, and new parts, some of which may show signs of aging and wear. I feel that such “imperfections” only add character to the piece and hope that you do too.
