Barro negro, or black clay, is most commonly associated with the famous black pottery of a village in the Central Valleys of Oaxaca. The artisan who made this necklace took some liberty with the medium to make this funky thing. You can align all the beads in the same direction for a more uniform look or turn them all sorts of ways for a compelling, uneven look. The black makes this a nice piece to wear to work or a night out.
