Throw away society
I love these old North African necklaces but the strings are often pretty ropey (no pun intended) and its difficult finding a good replacement string.I've used hemp thread but I'm also trying to by some camel hair thread from someone in Kingsbridge,Devon who weaves and spins.
Something pretty after my last post! These are beautiful kiffa beads made by hand in Mauritania.One of my restringing customers collects these beautiful old beads from across the world and I made up this necklace for her wedding last year.
The picture shows it before I added the silver clasp.
