This is a beautiful Vintage Beaded Love Letter Necklace from the Zulu tribe of South Africa. These kinds of Zulu love letters were made by young girls and women to express their emotions to their partners. The women made beads as gifts for friends or for admirers who had a leadership in their community such as chieftain and for daughters-in-laws. The bead work would be produced to show a sign of acceptance, welcome and building a mother-daughter relationship when their sons take a wife. Zulu bead works are recognized by the fact that the motifs are treated in a very symmetrical way. The colors and designs of these necklaces are very symbolic and specific to the area in which they are made, conveying a love poem that can be understood by others in the village. A very unique gift to express ones feeling to their partner, or can be just framed to hang in your home.
