Thembela Necklace - Nomi Handmade

Thembela Necklace




The Thembela necklace is Nomi Handmade’s flagship design. Simple, elegant and playful, this shweshwe jewellery piece was a journey of creative discovery that gave rise to the range of statement wearables in our current range.

Wrapped in a contrasting “metallic” thread to that of the fabric print, the Thembela necklace is clasp-free and can simply be slipped over the head. Wear it to add colour to and complete any outfit – casual or formal.

Made with 100% cotton and metallic-looking threads, this boldly understated necklace is hypoallergenic and lightweight. Choose your print and corresponding thread – silver, gold, copper or black.

Wear set of this neckpiece in different prints and colours to create a dramatic look. Grab them at a discount if you purchase 3 or 5 or more.

Processing time is the length of time between when an item is ordered and when it is shipped (eg. 1-3 business days means it will take 1-3 days to produce and can ship 1 day, 2 or 3 days after the date the order was placed).

This item is usually readymade and available to ship on the business day following the date the order was placed. Should it be available on backorder, this means that the item is out of stock and the maximum processing time will apply.

Factors that may also affect processing time include inventory levels, weekends and public holidays.

Please see shipping times at checkout and add to the above processing time to get an estimate of the order delivery date. (eg. 1 business day to process + 1-2 business days to ship = delivery in 3 business days)
