Asymmetrical Kazuri Elephant, Bone & Czech Glass Necklace Set

Details

Please read shipping notes before ordering this handmade jewelry.

Earth tone Kazuri beads blend with Czech glass, seed beads, horn and bone beads strung on .019 Accuflex create a unique, asymmetrical necklace. The closure is a gunmetal extender chain and hook. Kazuri beads are ceramic beads made in Kenya by women of the Kikuyu tribe. These fair-trade beads are made with clay from the Mt Kenya area lending authenticity to finished product.

The elephant focal bead in this piece is off-set rather than centered. The rest of the eclectic mix of bone, horn, Czech glass and seed beads are arranged in an asymmetrical pattern. The finished necklace measures approximately 20". The coordinating earrings are included in the price of the set. Also pictured are other original designs by Shelley K. Bossert, the NCTeddyBearLady.

In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears the financial institution on which it was written.

I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service. Secondary shipping charges depend on what else you are purchasing. If you are purchasing more than one item at a time from my studio, please e-mail for shipping charges. If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.

International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I combine shipping costs automatically.

Insurance is optional but I accept no responsibility for damage to or loss of uninsured shipments.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

For me, Kazuri beads represent the ultimate in opportunity for asymmetrical jewelry designs. They are hand-made beads, no two exactly alike. When I bought the focal bead, the elephant, it was a challenge to assemble the rest of the earth-tone mix and a further challenge to arrange them without putting the elephant bead in the expected center location. Once that was done, it was just a matter of doing the same with the rest of the beads.37
