African Handcrafted Kiffa Beads Tribal Jewelry Necklace

Kiffa Necklaces are considered one of the prized finds of all Tribal Jewelry...single Kiffa beads alone are highly sought after. Kiffa beads were originally handcrafted by Mauritania tribal artisans in Northern Africa during the 1800's. 

The color patterns of each bead and their juxtaposition of colors to one another spelled out hidden invocations to protect the wearer by using this tribal "color" code. They were made with crushed recycled glass that was re-fired into beads. 

Artisans meticulously applied designs using the most basic of tools, yet skillfully creating stunning beadwork.

This necklace is an excellent contemporary replica of  old Tribal Kiffa Necklaces. It was handcrafted in Mauritania Africa by local artisans.
