Half-collar Xhosa-style


On my recent travels to Africa, my tour guide Tingo (www.santacruisetours.com) took me to purchase Seed bead jewelry. He guided me to a tiny shop where I met a sweet Kenyan woman, Elizabeth. I was overwhelmed by the collection of beautiful tribal jewelry. However, I realized the color combinations didn't include the colors I usually buy. I realized I was looking for color combinations that represent my "tribes" in the US. My college alma mater (Florida A&M) is represented by orange and green. So, I asked Elizabeth to make pieces for me and was blown away by these traditional African style mantles in my uniquely American colors. I hope you enjoy our collaboration! Please see my other listings for other uniquely American color combinations! If you would like colors that are not shown, please send me a message!

The half-collar carries width of the collar to the back, but it does not cover the entire back. Matching seed bead and cow horn bangle bracelet included with purchase.
