100% natural handmade jewelry

The San have been making jewelry from ostrich eggs for centuries. The thick shell of the egg is cut into small beads that are then threaded in a traditional way into a beautiful necklace, bracelet or earring. The light brown and black colors are created by placing part of the beads in the fire.
