Mermaid’s Tears

Dive into an underwater world.  This isiShweshwe choker is bejeweled with glass beads.  Hand stitching in metallic thread and a gorgeous turquoise velvet ribbon finishes this piece off beautifully!

isiShweshwe has a long and interesting history that began in the East and was introduced to Africa by Dutch and German people.  This is the genuine South African Three Cats textile which is made from 100% cotton.  The pearl beads I’ve used are vintage sixties and of a particularly good quality.  There are also some tiny vintage glass crystal beads.
