Sidai Designs Long Double Bar Necklace


A 32-inch beaded necklace with both 14k gold-filled and white glass beads from Maasai craftswomen


Why We Love This

We love the delicate and feminine look of this necklace and the story of the Maasai women who craft it. Made mostly with white glass beads, this necklace, filled with 14k gold, includes two tiny bars of turquoise and a selection of 24k gold plated and glass beads. It’s tranquil and serene with a modern aesthetic.


Unlike the Maasai in Kenya who adorn their warriors in bright colors, the Maasai tribe in Tanzania, where this necklace and the rest of the collection are crafted, rely heavily on white as the theme of their tribal aesthetic. This piece is handcrafted using traditional methods and preserving the heritage of the Maasai, and also with great regard to the environment, sustainability and fair trade practices. These jewelry pieces translate into empowerment and an economic boost for this group of people in Tanzania.
