      Comments about Timbuktu Necklace:

      The illustration piece showed more sections that are in alignment with each other - top and bottom - where the color strips are marked off. Certainly not all and I wouldn't have wanted that but I can't even see one pair of lines from the top and bottom strings that line up and it takes a bit away from the more structured look of the original piece shown. What i have doesn't show a real beginning and end of the design that goes across the photographed necklace and that really is what attracted me to the piece to start with.

      The quality of the beadwork if lovely and I'm just a tad sorry that I didn't ask if the piece being made for me would be following a preset pattern. The copy mentioned there were 15 pieces at that time and I just assumed a pattern would have been followed.

      Unique beauty

      Comments about Timbuktu Necklace:

      I'm completely entranced with the way this necklace was created: the beads, which could have created a stiff necklace with a different method of stringing, drape themselves beautifully just by the way they're placed. I've never seen another necklace quite like it--I really do feel like I'm wearing a work of art. (Delivery was very fast.)

          Comments about Timbuktu Necklace:

          The item's description, indicating the beadweaving stitch as Tubular Peyote, is incorrect. I teach Peyote/Gourd beadweaving techniques and this is a beautiful example of the Herringbone or Ndebele beadweaving technique.
