Wood Beaded Necklaces from West Africa
And I didn't even have to remove my shoes! The exquisite artistry strung in wooden beads speaks volumes of a vibrant culture. One can vicariously imagine the pulse of,say, a market on the outskirts of Accra where I might haggle good-naturedly over the price of her creation with Elizabeth Alorchie-Apetor! Africa travels well. kudos to the artisans' of NOVICA! Thank You Elizabeth! John.
I am pleased to be the proud owner of this work of art. I will consider purchasing other items from the artist.

I have had this piece for a while and I love it. It is absolutely unique and always gets attention when I wear it. The craftsmanship is awesome. Simply a stunning piece. I have searched for another one. Hopefully the artist will make more.
