Details

In Maasai culture, the wedding collar is made by the mother of the bride-to-be, in a painstaking process that can take weeks. The bead colors are specifically chosen for their symbolism. The collar necklace is then given to the bride on her wedding day as a visual symbol of her new status. The artisans of BeadWORKS create this stunning multicolored wedding collar. Please expect each to be a unique work of wearable art.
