Chunky Tribal Necklace, Vintage Resin Bone Howlite Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with fabulous ethnic boho vibes, the chunky TRIBAL ADVENTURE necklace definitely makes a unique eye catching statement whenever worn (which will be often!).  The one of a kind necklace features three rondelle shaped vintage black and white striped resin beads, black and white African batik horn beads and turquoise howlite gemstones.  The three striped focal beads were upcycled from a vintage necklace and mimic African batik beads. Created from man made resin, they are in excellent shape and show very little wear and sport a high gloss finish.  Because they are made from resin, the large beads add virtually no weight to the necklace. To add subtle glow, copper daisy spacers and small copper beads separate the rondelles from the rest of the beads.
To perfectly highlight the vintage resin beads, six fair trade batik bone beads were used, each individually handmade by members of an African artists co-op in Ghana.  They are black with white accents and hints of dark brown. The batik beads are a unique shape: roundish but with three large “facets” cut on each end adding wonderful eye interest and texture.  Three of these unique beads are found on each side of the necklace. Beautiful turquoise howlite gemstone rounds separated the vintage beads and batik beads. Howlite is naturally and off white stone with gray to black matix.  Since howlite takes a dye easily, it can be found in a wide variety of colors, such as these soft turquoise colored beauties. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TRIBAL ADVENTURE necklace is perfect jewelry for the woman who adores ethnic inspired jewelry and loves to wear one of a kind designs.

Traditionally, bone is said to bring good fortune, strength and wisdom.  Howlite is believed to reduce stress, anger and negative emotions; it is also believed to increase the appreciation of beauty.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.   


The boho necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
