Blue Agate & Papyrus Seed Beaded Pendant Necklace

Special Price $83.30 Regular Price $119.00
Signature Gift Packaging Included For Free!
Each striking slice of blue druzy agate is encased in gold, and hangs from a woven cord of black papyrus seed beads from West Africa's Ivory Coast. There, a team of skilled female artisans harvest the papyrus seeds by hand and heat them in order to ''pop'' them out of their shells. Using only hand tools, the women then pierce each seed before stringing it by hand, one at a time. Glass seed beads add an elegant touch, while an extra clasp allows this necklace to be worn a number of ways. Size and shape of each natural stone pendant may vary. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan. Dimensions - 27 inches long, 1.75 inch extender, approximately 2 inch to 3.5 inch pendant, lobster clasp.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
