Our Benin Necklace is pure chic with a tribal flair that combines two styles of West African Baule beads with a solid brass ring and bib-like connector.
We hand hammer the center ring to create an organic textured effect.
The 6,000-year-old technique for creating Baule beads involves a series of meticulous steps to create a hand cast wax mold that is filled with molten metal. The end result is a beautiful intricate pattern and the fact that no two beads are the same.
The necklace is finished with a durable and lightweight 18-inch hollow snake chain that can extend up to 24 inches.
