African Kazuri Green

Item Description

Kazuri Beads are are hand-painted ceramic made in Nairobi, Kenya. Each bead is shaped by hand, without the aid of molds or forms by one of the local women employed by Kazuri at a fair wage. Whenever I wear my own Kazuri jewelry I think of Isak Dinesen's stories about Africa, and imagine the women discussing their lives, laughing, and sharing stories while creating colorful beads. If only the beads could talk...

This green Kazuri bead has stripes of blue, colors that are relected in the wire wrapped Czech glass dangles. I've added copper disksand brass chain to give this bracelet the look of the desert after a hearty rain.

The bracelet measures 7-8 inches to allow for drape preference on your wrist. A swivel lobster class allows for easy on/off.
