a couple years ago in my high school art history class we were assigned a jewelry assignment [awesome!] based on african tribal art.  the general gist of it was that some tribes used necklaces as a form of currency, and these necklaces were made of materials found in their area. we had to make necklaces reflecting the materials that surround us.

i came up with this:





5 separate necklaces made from rolled magazine pages, spraypainted macaroni [all the gold is macaroni], wire and seashells.
