Here is one of my favorite kinds of necklaces to make, possibly because I lived in Africa for 2-1/2 years, although in neither of the countries represented here. This piece was created of Ghanaian powder glass beads, with Tibetan silver* spacers and a pendant of Moroccan silver. The necklace is 21-3/4 inches end to end, including the over-sized pewter hook clasp, and has a pendant drop of 2-1/2 inches.

*The answer is No, I do not think that Tibet is an African country (doh). Also, Tibetan silver is a lead-free zinc alloy (just for the record).

I asked the U. S. seller of the pendant what she could tell me about the composition of the pendant, and all she knew was that it is made of a base metal which then undergoes several "silver washes." I'm not sure what that means, but the pendant was attractive, so I bought it.

Oh, yes. I lived in the country now known as Zaire, which is the former Belgian Congo.

Thank you for visiting today.
