Silver Fringe Necklace
Handmade in Kenya by our partner that transforms the mobile phone into a tool that expands access to economic opportunity for artisans in underserved communities. Working in bottom of the pyramid communities around the world, they realized that by leveraging technology and existing infrastructure in an innovative way, they could create a platform to enable any talented artisan to participate in international trade.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Historians have found the first signs of jewelry ever being worn in Africa, almost 75,000 years ago. When it comes to creating jewelry, Africans will use everything they have access to. For this reason, African jewelry can be made out of a wide variety of materials, from bone and shells to animal teeth and hair. Throughout history, jewelry-making has been the preserve of women, with mothers teaching their daughters how to create pieces.
