Story: GlamTribal was born in a search for black lava beads. That search took Anne to Lake Turkana and the Omo Valley of southern Ethiopia. The Google search intersected w/her existing writing about Kenya, Dan Eldon and the Leakey family. To this day, Lake Turkana is regarded as a cradle of human civilization, although scientists now believe that humanity evolved and migrated from more than one location in Africa.
These lightweight dangle earrings honor our human origins in Africa. Lava is much smaller than it appears at 3/4”W. These gorgeous statement earrings have perfect proportions.
