African Elephant hair jewelry

Size: adjustable

Elephant hair has been used for many generations in African in jewelry or bangle design is some form or another. Tradition states that

"BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY HAS BELIEVED THAT THE CONNECTION BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH IS THE ELEPHANT. IT IS BELIEVED THAT BY WEARING A BRACELET YOU WILL BE PROSPEROUS AND HEALTHY AND NOT BECOME SICK OR POOR. THE VARIOUS STRANDS OF HAIR ARE BELIEVED TO REPRESENT VARIOUS ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE: HEALTH, WEALTH, LOVE, WELL BEING, AND HARMONY ETC. THE KNOTS REPRESENT THE HANDS OF GOD -GOD HAS MANY HANDS. ONE SIZE FITS ALL VERY MANY AFRICAN PEOPLE WEAR ELEPHANT HAIR JEWELRY -MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE ALSO WEAR THEM."Elephant hair bracelet

The hair of the Elephant that is used to make these bracelets come from the end of the Elephants tail (as seen in the photo below) The hair can grow to some length and can reach lengths of up to 30cm in length. In older Elephants the hair turns white which show really old and rare hair.

Elephant hair is legal in South Africa and you will see Elephant hair Jewelry in some crafts markets and jewelry stores. Elephants in South Africa are actually thriving to the point where it is causing a problem for some of the national game reserves who are running out of space for them.

We only get in a few pieces of jewelry from local game reserves in our area when they have collected hair and have them available. Usually we get in a few Elephant hair bracelets which we unravel and use the hair to make other pieces of Jewelry which can be found on this website.

All Elephant hair Jewelry is handcrafted which adds to the uniqueness of each piece.
