Healing and Empowerment for Women

I am a member of the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy. This month’s challenge was “Tribal”. I created Nelson Mandela Turquoise to make this necklace; some of the other pieces of Nelson Mandela Turquoise were made from the leftovers from this project.

Nobel Prize winner Nelson Mandela is a member of the Tembu Tribe of South Africa. Mandela studied law and then dedicated himself to service to his nation. He had 67 years of public service all told. Mandela’s work was about Peace and Reconciliation.

The Nelson Mandela Turquoise is made in the colors of the South African flag: black, navy, red and green, which symbolize unity.

The necklace has seven beads of Nelson Mandela Turquoise, two “black lava” beads, twelve antique gold polymer clay spacers and hundreds of  “coconut husk” disks created from a mix of brown, black and antique gold polymer clays.
