Anyone who has been to Kenya, has probably been introduced to and marveled at the colorful beadwork of the Maasai. And now Philip and Katy Leakey have given that age-old art a contemporary twist in their collection of necklaces and bracelets made by the Maasai using natural grass and African hardwood beads. Mixed with Czech glass beads, these multi-strand pieces add a pop of color to any outfit. The Leakeys, who live in the Great Rift Valley among the Maasai, have found a way to give back to their local community by creating stunning jewelry from environmentally sustainable materials.
This necklace and bracelet set from Kenya features 16 strands of Zulugrass beads in a beautiful combination strung with Czech glass beads for extra sparkle. Light weight and comfortable, these necklaces and bracelets look great with outfits from casual to professional.
Wear the necklace long or as a choker. Simply adjust with a pull on the satin cord.
The peony zulu bead necklace and bracelet are available as a set or sold separately on their own.
The Leakey Collection, founded in 2002 by Philip and Katy Leakey, designs contemporary home products and jewelry, which are handmade by the Maasai of Kenya. The company employs more than 1,200 Kenyans depending on the time of year, providing much-needed economic enrichment. The Leakeys live in the rural bush of the Great Rift Valley among the Maasai. Women work under the acacia trees at mobile work sites in their community, which are set up at the discretion of the Maasai women and elders. All materials used in the collection are environmentally sustainable.
