Zemba Necklace - Yellow #1


The Zemba people also known as Tjimba people live in southwest Angola and northwest Namibia. In contrast to the baron landscape and the earthy tones of the Himba communities that they live with, Zemba people are known for their distinct culture, physicality and appearance, adorning themselves in bright and colourful jewellery and clothing. These rare necklaces were made and worn by Zemba women, glass beads are threaded onto wire and worn in stacks around the neck.

Each one is unique. Slips over head, or simple wire clip for opening.
