This necklace is sold. However, I have enough materials to create only one special order necklace. There is no uniformity in the hippo teeth beads, so these beads will not be an exact match to those pictured. Please inquire first.
Components: money cowry shell, copper British colonial coins, petrified hippo teeth beads, carnelian beads, small conch shell beads, Ndali brass ring beads, cluster glass beads.
The money cowry was the first form of univers currency used on the Afrikan continent and should not be confused with the shiny yellowish ring top cowry from the Philippines which are often used as a substitute. The money cowry is a thick shell, the Philippine shell is much thinner. Reddish orange gem stone beads are carnelian. The British minted these copper coins for their East Afrikan colonies. The large beads are made from petrified hippopotamus teeth. These are rare. Separating these are very small conch shell beads. Small yellow glass beads clusters along with the barely visible brass Ndali beads.
