Californiastan Pendant *UNISEX*
The Afghan diaspora is STRONG in California, so I decided to design a completely original concept- the California bear and star (from the California flag) within the map of Afghanistan. It’s a very specific necklace, but hey, now you’re wearing your identity on your sleeve...or rather around your neck ;)
The charm can also be taken off the chain it comes with for another look if you so desire!
This design was dedicated to my father who was “accidentally” born in sunny California, but grew up mostly in Afghanistan. Afghanistan is also where he died- suddenly, about a week after I showed him the final of this piece. So this one’s for you padre; R.I.P Bobagak: 31/03/52-29/10/17.
Gold-plated brass with a chain length of 16 inches (40,60 cm).
Handmade, beautiful and unique gold jewelry, from Afghanistan via California, with love.
