Description

African Print Necklace is tribal inspired. NZURI SANA handmade necklace is a truly stunning piece of boho jewelry that juxtaposes the more rustic look of fair trade African batik bone beads with the smooth elegance of black onyx gemstones. Seven hand cut, wavy patterned black and white batik bone beads in a slightly curved flag shape are absolutely eye catching. Since each batik flag bead is individually handmade and decorated on both sides in Ghana (please see below for more information about that), they are very similar in design and color but not exactly the same.

Between each batik bead is a sleek and shiny black onyx round bead, separated from the batik flags by pewter disc spacers and small sterling silver beads. Black onyx beads finish the back of the necklace, interspersed with the lead free pewter and sterling beads. A textured sterling silver hook clasp set finishes the necklace perfectly. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind NZURI SANA necklace is perfect for the woman who loves unique tribal jewelry and one who loves to hear the many positive comments on the jewelry she wears! “Nzuri sana” is Swahili for “very beautiful.”

Catherine Waterhouse – Owner/Designer

Experiencing a life long love affair with Nature (am a self-professed “nature geek”), I am able to satisfy a strong desire to create by designing one-of-a-kind jewelry mainly using semi-precious stones and sterling or fine silver. But polymer clay, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, copper and lampwork beads also play a huge part in the design process. My Muse is Nature, and to be inspired, I just have to look out over the amazing desert landscape where my husband, my Shadow Dog, Seamus, and I are privileged to live. My work has been sold through galleries in Virginia, Texas and South Carolina, through art shows, home shows, Facebook, Pinterest, Wanelo, Flickr and ArtFire . . . and now Indiemade. I LOVE my “job!”

I am an ardent supporter of adopting dogs from shelters.  To help the many sweeties waiting for their forever homes, I have started a line of “dog rescue” jewelry.  For each piece sold, 1/2 of the purchase price is donated to the local Humane Society.  I am thrilled and humbled that the earrings are brisk sellers both on line and at the arts festivals I attend.

Shadow Dog Designs is your place to purchase beautifully unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry. The jewelry-making bug bit me hard about 13 years ago and I have been selling my designs ever then. As long as I can remember, I have always “made” something. The desire to create is satisfied by designing one-of-a-kind jewelry, mainly using semi-precious stones and sterling or fine silver, but also polymer clay, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, and, more recently, copper and lampwork beads. I love incorporating other artists’ pieces in my work for a truly unique piece. My Muse is Nature, and to be inspired, I just have to look out over the amazing desert landscape where my husband, my Shadow Dog, Seamus, and I are privileged to live.
I am a strong advocate for pet adoption – there are just too many loving souls waiting for their forever home. To help out, I started a line of “rescue dog” jewelry about a year ago. When one of these pieces sells, 1/2 of the purchase price is donated to the local Humane Society where we adopted our sweet Seamus, the newest in a long line of Shadow Dogs.” Visit My Indie shop to see more of my designs!
