This one of a kind necklace was designed around the stunning teal and metallic bronze Kazuri bead. I created the pendant by enhancing the Kazuri with a simple sterling silver bail and a fine silver spiral charm. I added caribbean blue apatite, flashy labrodite, hematite and a mix of sterling silver details, including handcrafted, vintage sterling silver round beads. The back half of the necklace is composed of dainty sterling silver chain and it closes with a sterling silver 'S' hook detailed with a spiral complimenting the pendant.
This necklace measures 19", the pendant dangles about 2" and it comes beautifully packaged in a gift box ready for YOU to open, or give to a friend.

The History of Kazuri Beads: Kazuri Founder, Lady Susan Wood was born in 1918 in a mud hut in an African village. Her parents were missionaries from England in the Ituri Forest. Lady Wood was sent back to England to be educated, married a surgeon and they came to Kenya in 1947.
In 1975, Lady Wood set up a fledging business making beads in a small shed in her Kenya garden. She started by hiring two disadvantaged women, and quickly realized that there were many more women who were in need of jobs and so Kazuri Beads was created and began its long and successful journey as a help center for the needy women, especially single mothers who had no other source of income.
In 1988 Kazuri became a factory and expanded hugely with over 120 women and men. Here women are trained and apply their skills to produce these unique and beautiful beads and jewelry. The beads are made with clay from the Mt Kenya area thus giving them authenticity to their craft. The factory acts as a social gathering with the hum of voices continuing throughout the day. With unemployment so high, one jobholder often ends up providing for an "extended family" of 20 or more. Kazuri is a member of the Fair Trade Act.
