Ethnic Yellow Turkish Hebron Bead and African Disc Pendant Necklace


Cote d'Ivoire:

Super ethnic and primitive, this exotic tribal statement necklace could have just been unearthed at the latest archaeological dig. Old trade beads and an ancient looking Ivory Coast disc pendant give this museum-style necklace a mysterious and historical aura. The yellow beads are referred to as Hebron beads and are very rare beads from as early as the 1400’s. They were made in the city of Hebron (one of the oldest cities in the world), located in the West Bank. They are made of opaque glass and are thought to have used salt from the Dead Sea as their alkali. They were used as trade beads and were actually found in Africa. They show their age and use well and imagining the hands they’ve touched and the places they’ve seen will take your mind traveling. The soulful brass disc was handmade in Cote d'Ivoire, Africa by skilled artisans who use the age-old method termed lost wax.
