This project helps support a virtuous circle, empowering women, enhancing lives and protecting wildlife. It is social enterprise based working with self-governed women's groups in rural communities spread across northern Kenya. It now provides a reliable and sustainable income for more than 1,300 women, indirectly benefiting over 7,800 people. This Collection, featuring playful statement necklaces and tassel earrings, is entirely handcrafted using the finest quality Czech glass beads. The bead work is delicate and light, making the beaded jewelry super comfortable for everyday wear. Bead working has a long history in this part of Africa and is carried out almost entirely by women. It can be seen as a form of communication, the colors representing meanings such as white for peace and blue for water, and a woman's identity and position in society is articulated through her body ornamentation.
