This mounted Tikar Beaded Bangle is made by the Tikar of Cameroon, a group that is part of the Bantu Cameroon-Bamileke people in southern Africa. Originally made as a piece of jewelry to be worn, most Tikar Beaded Bangles today are made as decorative pieces for display, as their vibrant glass beads in a simple circle form create a striking visual impact. To create each bangle, a solid ring of clay is fired and then overlaid with individually placed strands of glass seed beads. Style your Tikar Clay Beaded Bangle atop a stack of coffee table books or nestled into a group of picture frames. A standalone piece, these bangles are lovely gift items available in a variety of colors. Includes iron display stand.
