Broad Handcrafted Ovahimba Ostrich Shell Beads Bangle


This bangle/ bracelet is made entirely from handcrafted genuine ostrich shell beads. There are 10 rows of small ostrich beads and one large ostrich button to close the bangle. This bangle is designed in the typical Ovahimba style, a tribe that lives in the northern part of Namibia. The beads are made by crushing the shell of an ostrich egg and grinding the pieces over a stone. Holes are drilled into the small pieces later. This bracelet is a traditional African piece that represents the craft of jewelery making of the Ovahimba tribe but still it is elegant and modern with its organic and natural appeal. The width of the bracelet is 2 cm and the length is 21 cm.
