White Caps: Stacking Bracelet, Mala / Boho Spring Jewelry / Vintage African White Padres and Wedding Beads / Nautical Boho Fashion
Like the white caps on blue seas, these vintage African White Padre beads (found in Ethiopia), are beautifully striking against the blue striated African Wedding Beads (found in Mali). Dress it up, dress it down, stack 'em on! I love the aged look of the Padre Beads. It is clear that they have a story to tell.
African Wedding are called "Wedding Beads" because on her wedding day, a bride would be given a necklace of these beads, collected by the women near and dear to her. Both the Padres and Wedding beads have been traded through multiple sources, hence the wear and tear on them, which adds to their beauty. Some beads have scratches on their surface, pits in the glass, or some of the surface pattern is worn off. This is what makes them unique, and adds to the intrigue and beauty.
As with all of my jewelry, this bracelet is made with love. It is inspired by my love of faraway lands and color.
Strung to fit a 6.5" wrist. Please let me know if you would like this sized differently.
