Earth Collection:

This exquisite necklace is composed exclusively of vintage beads.  Indeed, it features various vintage Afghan Kazakh ethnic tribal alpaca oval beads, 100% handmade most with beautiful enamel workmanship. The Kazakh nomads, who settled in northern Afghanistan, are renowned for their unique hand-beaten metal beads adorned with semi-precious stone enamel inlays, a distinctive Kazakh trademark.

The necklace pairs these intricate beads with vintage malachite and green resin beads, creating a striking blend of textures and colors.

The hollow metal beads, decorated with intricate silver wirework, circular frames, and semi-precious stone inlays, also feature their signature ‘false granulation’—triangular imprints that add to their unique appeal. Crude in texture and individually handmade, these beads have become a significant currency for trading goods.

Often mistaken for Turkoman craftsmanship, Kazakh beads stand apart with their distinct style and lack of ‘False Granulation’. The Kazakh nomads, also called Kuchi Kazakhs, now number close to three million, mainly settled in northern Afghanistan.

This necklace belongs to our Earth Collection, which celebrates the rich cultural heritage and sustainable craftsmanship of the Kazakh people and symbolizes our commitment to protecting the planet and its diverse cultures.
