This necklace includes Chevron beads. This bead is considered as some of the noblest of the trade beads brought to Africa since the 15th century. They were invented in Venice as drawn tubes with zigzag patterns and many layers in cross sections. The rest is ground down to reveal the zigzag.

I also used black Jigida vulcanite record Beads , it is a vintage African vinyl . It is used in Nigeria as an important symbol of material and body culture.

Green translucent krobo Ghana bead  is a traditional bead from an area in Ghana call Krobo mountains. It is handmade so colour and size vary to keep the unique rustic appeal.

Lastly this necklace includes a very rare African bronze bead from Nigeria.
