samburu abundance necklace

New years bring many wishes of joy, peace, love but also abundance! A great talisman to usher it in would be  the “Abundance” necklace worn by married  Samburu women to show their wealth, and status.  Call it bling Samburu style while the “Pride” necklace we interpret as the pride of being a woman (available here ) is made by “mothers and given to their daughters to enhance their beauty and accentuate their purity. Rising up with each concentric ring like the volcanic cones in Samburu country, this necklace contains all the elements of Samburu culture:  red for blood – the symbol of life, green is the color of prayer and of grass for cattle, blue for the desert skies, and black for the Samburu’s dark skin. A Samburu woman is rarely without this stunning piece.” Made in the village of Umoja , view “Pride” on the next page.With all the Afro-inspired fashions we’ve seen on the runways we figure that looking at the real thing is if anything appropriate, and of course Highsnobette approved.
