While I was back east visiting my family, my step-mom gave me some beads she had bought while in Africa. She lived there several years doing mission work. She thought I might be able to use them to make some jewelry. She was right! I love guinea fowl feather, and I thought it was totally appropriate to pair them with the bright yellow beads, since they are indigenous to Africa. This 28 in. long necklace, holds the 1 inch across beads and 3 guinea fowl feathers. The color combination of the yellow and black/gray is beautiful, and so trendy!
