African touch

One torn (silk) pair of children trousers and one torn silk scarf make lots of silk beads.
I made another necklace with the beads. I combined this time with horn batik beads from Kenia and Ethiopean silver beads beaded on a (self dyed) silk thread. (from now on in my shop.) clcik on the pictures to go to the shop.

Using these African beads made me think of the fact that no one can beat African people in repurposing and recycling, they are simply the best in it! (have you ever seen the beautiful toys they make out of scrap metal and wood, and look how creative these boys have been in the pic above:-))
