Black-and-White African Zulu Beaded Choker

This African Zulu choker is created using two contrasting colours of black and white which signify marriage and love. The necklace has a woven band of glass seed beads and delicate tassels hang from it. This beautiful necklace has been made by a NGO in South Africa and would complement any deep-necked dress.

Zulu bead jewellery is not only beautiful but also rich in tradition and cultural meaning. The largest tribe in Southern Africa, the Zulus, especially women, are renowned for their skilful beadwork. Traditionally beadwork conveyed messages in its design and use of colour relating to courtship or marriage. The NGO which Arastan works with is trying to retain this craft by encouraging Zulu women to create aesthetically designed contemporary necklaces.
