African Bead Wire Bracelet Copper Black Silver Gold
This vintage African bracelet was handmade in South Africa by weaving copper telephone wire as a base and intertwining glass beads throughout. The beautiful Zulu tribal design is amazing and rich colors of copper, gold, silver and black merge perfectly into this fine piece of jewelry. The silver beads are more of a silvery white color. This bracelet is flexible but not stretchable.
This is a very generous size bracelet and easily slides over the hand. It may not be the best for a very small hand.
The beaded items you see on this site were made prior to the advent of westerners changing designs more for speed and quantity. I would love to say more, but I don't have the time now.
