I made this simple, minimalist, very elegant, timeless necklace by using mostly materials handmade in Africa. I wire wrapped a unique handmade white raku bead and African Jasper gemstone with my own oxidized  pure copper wire and I dangled the necklace with a large pendant which included large handmade Ethiopian metal, vintage African glass, handmade raku and ivory lampwork spacers and raku ceramic beads to make this stunning African Inspired necklace statement. I finished the assemblage with oxidized silver chain reminiscent of the handmade Ethiopian silver pendant.

I'm on my way...

Sometimes,  I like to be my own model.  A souvenir of my short-lived as a model in the 80's.
