In the Swahili language, Zuri means '"beautiful." Which is just how you'll feel when wearing this stunning artisan necklace and matching earrings! The large discs and bold colors are reminiscent of the jewelry common in the East African region.
The vibrant lampwork beads were created by the talented glass artisans, Moon and Bob Stumpp of Mixed Media Jewelry. The large focal bead is an incredible 40 mm in diameter! Loaded with fine silver, the bold bright beads have a delightful earthy appeal that I couldn't resist! This unique and funky lampwork is a perfect match for my unique and funky wire work!
Tons of wonderful coils make up the chain. Coil-wrapped love knots and crazy coils are enhanced with more lovely lampwork and Hill Tribe silver. For a finishing touch, the entire piece has been given a gentle rich patina.
The necklace is a comfortable and adjustable 22-24 inches in length. I've made matching earrings measuring a dramatic 3 inches overall length. My handmade Sterling silver ear wires are 18 gauge.
