Tahndi Long Organic Necklace
Drawing on African heritage and craftsmanship, each Klaylife bead that makes up élodie's Tahndi Necklace are hand-rolled by the women of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Using raw clay, the beads are sun-dried, kiln fired and dip-dyed ensuring no two are the same.
This necklace is a collaboration between Klaylife and Elodie Darwish of élodie jewellery, an Australian Jewellery Designer who is fascinated by the beauty of imperfection. élodie works predominantly by hand in both precious and non-precious metals, creating pieces which are expressive, organic and always evolving.
Metal components are made from brushed gold plated brass. Beads are not perfect circles, and the colours may vary - because the beads are porous, some absorb the dye more than others. The metal is hand-brushed to create a textured, imperfect aesthetic.
- MATERIAL - Clay + gold plated brass
- Made in Byron Bay
When not in use, lay your jewellery flat in its box to maintain shape, minimise stretch and reduce exposure to moisture and dust. Take great care when handling your beads as they are made from natural materials that are porous. Exposure to air can cause the metal to tarnish. To restore, gently rub the surface with a soft polishing cloth.
