The \u201cUmoja Collection\u201d consists of an array of unique afrocentric/ethnic pieces composed of an exquisite m\u00e9lange of beads including but not limited to: African trade beads, mellifiore, pony, red coral, chevrons, lapis lazuli, turquoise, wood and white hearts. I typically utilize sterling silver, gold filled or brass findings as the hardware on each piece. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~These earrings are fierce on so many different levels. These earrings were fashioned after the intricate beadwork of the Maasai peoples from Kenya. The Maasai peoples have come to represent Africa at its most primal being a fiercely independent tribe who shuns the modern world in favor of traditional rites and customs. A single cowry shell is attached top and bottom to a length of silver plated artistic wire that has been hand forged. Seed beads in squash, light red, dk red, red-orange and leaf green are herringbone wrapped onto the wire with a row of solid green ascending the shaft of the earrings. Sterling links and posts complete the piece.The earrings measure 3-3/8" in length., sterling rings
