Grace your neck with a waterfall of glistening fuchsia-pink glass beads with peacock and gold overtones. 15 graduated strands cascade down, beginning from choker length, to envelope your heart with the love of Oya, the tempestuous Yoruba River Goddess who reigns over storms of strong wind, rain and lightning, cuts open new paths with her sword and is known in the Yoruba tradition as a fierce Warrioress who fights on behalf of her children. Shortest strand measures 15" , longest- 29". Sits comfortably on the neck and drapes over the breast in row after row of glittering fiery waves. Closes securely with a round beaded loop over a bead knot. Made with Love. Ships in a sturdy cotton filled gift box.

Chameleons are everywhere in Yorubaland and the subject of many stories. Verses of odu Ifa talk of Agemon the Chameleon with his fancy clothes who bested all the orisa at a party, none being able to match his finery as he magically changed his "clothes" from one bright splendid color after another.
