Bone Necklaces from West Africa
Just received this necklace and it is so unique! The choice of accent colors to compliment the polished bull horn is beautiful. I look forward to wearing the necklace and earrings a lot during the next few months. Mr. Suleyman does beautiful and artistic work!
I love this necklace. I spent a month in Rwanda and Uganda with a 2015 CNN Hero of the Year nominee I am helping to write his autobiography. Being a male, we never got close to jewelry. I fell in love with Rwanda and the traditional tribal dresses and skirts. I also craved jewelry. I have my beautiful necklace on right now. It's beautiful. I love everything about Africa and always have. Now that I've been in two of the countries, my necklace means even more.
