Zulu Beaded Panel Necklace - South Africa

A gorgeous Zulu beaded panel necklace showing excellent preservation. A classic South African palette has been used to great effect here, particularly in the rich serenity of the vivid blue panel, which draws the eye deeply into lake-like negative space.

Panel necklaces of this type would have been used as just one part of a dazzling, layered ensemble of beaded items. This piece is in uncommonly intact condition and can still be worn.
