About Elephant Hair Jewelry

Bracelets and rings made with this material were a popular souvenir choice for folks visiting Africa in the 1800's.  Small shops and roadside stands sold these handmade pieces, offering special mementos to tourists from Europe.  Elephant hair jewelry was told to promote strength and good luck.
