Visit my eBay store  

After selling my jewelry designs in galleries over the last 8 years, I've decided it's time to sell some of my component beads. All of my rare, antique beads were purchased directly from collectors, archeologists and/or established African traders.

Today I'm offering the following:

Rare Lost Wax process brass beads & a brass figurative Talon (or Phalic Fertility Symbol) from an antique African Chief's necklace. I've composed them in a set for your collection or a necklace. The antique brass beads are balanced with antique handmade ostrich shell beads, 2 antique Venetian End of Day beads & 2 antique black bicone King Trade Beads. Great patina & character only found in well loved, worn beads. Dating from the late 1800's they are something to really enjoy. ( 30" of black rubber stringing material is included.)

The brass Talon hangs apx. 62 mm or 2 1/2". 


    Thank you for looking.
