wildflower inspired african glass necklaces

African glass strands are essentially ready to wear upon arrival, but mixing these unique, textured beads with smooth metal, faceted crystal, gold, and silver, makes them so much more fun. our wildflower bouquet collection inspired these two pieces. colorful, but somehow subdued. they look gorgeous alone, together, or stacked high with other pieces. in the image above, we've paired them with a baroque pearl front closure necklace, an evil eye chain, and a shiny gold paper clip chain. for a full material list + more, keep scrolling.
