This necklace was handmade in Downtown Noblesville in our boutique. The beads and stones come from a range of countries. Starting from the clasp, there is a darker mineral called Hematite. This was sourced in the East African nations of Kenya and Tanzania. The faceted glass spacer beads thereafter and all through the necklace were ordered from Hong Kong. The green stone is Malachite and these were sourced from Small businessmen and women in the markets of Congo's capital city Kinshasa, which is where the name of the necklace originated. The longer acrylic looking beads are cattle horn. It is customary to reuse those instead of waste them. They are used for making art and musical instruments. In this case, they were used to make jewelry. The central piece after that was ordered and purchased in America. We called this the Kinshasa conference because we built around the Malachite that originated from Congo. We also liked how various countries came together to make this necklace and we thus named it after all the elite events we read about across the world. We wanted a necklace that allowed a woman variety and was an easy match to a lot of what she had. When paired with a low V dress or top, this necklace is a statement and conversation starter. There is only one of it's kind. Make it yours today.
