African Colors Necklace

I’m crazy about African Kazuri Beads and take every opportunity to use them in my jewelry. There is an endless variety available and they are completely handmade made in Kenya under an International Fair Trade Agreement that provides decent wages and working conditions for women supporting impoverished families.

If you haven’t experienced the joy of using Kazuri Beads, I encourage you to try them. I’m thrilled every time I finish a Kazuri piece.

Finding Kazuri Beads

Neena, Just put Kazuri Beads in to Google and you’ll get sources. There are several “official” dealers who sell on-line. I use Antelope Beads quite a lot and several others too.
