It is Berber design inspired. But I also included other beads to express my point of view.

By comparison, an authentic Berber necklace would not be so fussy -nor knotted. Using tiny in-between beads allows my necklace to easily fold into the palm of one hand.

I have the feeling that nomadic Berbers may have used their necklaces as currency -because a loosely strung necklace can easily be dismantled for parts.

"Bead collectors have scissors in their eyes." When I see an authentic Berber necklace, I always want to cut it apart so I can keep the beads which speak to me.
