Our exclusive fair trade porcupine quill jewellery is made by Kokskraal Handcrafts, a job creation project for Xhosa women. Without doubt this is our best selling necklace. Not only is it exclusive to Cebra, you won't easily find a 100% natural piece of jewellery that has been crafted with so much attention to detail and quality. Sophisticated and elegant, this is a true attention grabber.
A chic and special necklace made from porcupine quills and hematites. These quills were collected from the wild by a tribe of Xhosa women and then made into jewellery and accessories by the co-operative. Quills are released by contact with them, or they may drop out when the porcupine shakes its body, but cannot be projected at attackers, contrary to popular belief. New quills grow to replace lost ones.
No arnimals did come to harm and no porcupines were killed in order to obtain their quills to make this jewellery.
Total length: 47cm incl. extender
Matching bracelet and earrings as well as sets available.
