AFRICAN ACCESSORY –The ‘Square-tile geometric Neckpiece’
I tend to focus on clothes and shoes (and sometimes bags) when putting my ‘look of the day’ together i.e getting dressed in the morning and a LOT LESS on accessories.
So, when market-shopping I run my eyes very quickly over the dozens of beads, necklaces, keyrings, woodcarved masks, souvenirs, bags, fabrics etc. (also partly to not get too caught up with the traders who vie for your attention, each with some sought of story
sales pitch )
When I saw THIS piece-the structure, shape, geometric pattern and color- it was an immediate and instant buy. And instant gratification .
When I put it on for the second time, it was heavier than I remember but it’s that chunky effect that gives it presence and makes it quite a statement piece.
It’s simple, chic and mysterious. It has no brand name, I don’t know exactly who made it (my guess it’s the work of an artisan) and my wish is that it’s a ‘one of a kind’ but that I’ll never know.
Bought in Dakar, MarketPlace
