African-Inspired

Necklaces & Pendants

Our collection of African-inspired necklaces, pins and pendants are designed to honor the natural beauty of Africa. While focusing on our inspiration we also work to create pieces that are both comfortable and flattering to the wearer. Many of these pieces are designed to compliment the natural African materials they incorporate, like tusks, claws and bones. 

 

Our African-inspired necklaces and pendants maintain a high standard of elegance and quality craftsmanship unique to Singleton-Moss creations.  You will find that most designs are custom-made to suit each clients tastes, but some pieces now available to the general public are marked as such, and may be purchased through our online store.
