These very lovely African clay earrings have a wonderful story to go with them. I am pleased and delighted to work with these clay art beads and would love to share their story with you.
"From a coffee plantation on the Karen von Blixen estate, famous from the award winning movie "Out of Africa", at the foot of the Ngon'g Hills these beads are created with clay from Mt Kenya. The late Lady Susan Wood founded Kazuri in 1975. Observing that many women in the villages around Nairobi were struggling single mothers, she and two Kikuyu women organized a ceramic workshop to teach them jewelry making skills. Kazuri, the Swahili word for 'small and beautiful' are created by hand by one of over 350 local women. The beads are then kiln fired once, glazed and fired again. Kazuri’s goal is to provide employment opportunities for disadvantaged members of Kenyan Society. Kazuri is a member of the Fair Trade Act."
These handmade earrings will add a touch of beauty to your summer wardrobe but, they will also add a feel good touch to your heart. Please watch for more African Clay Bead, Kazuri designs coming to EarthWhorls in future collections. Length: 2"
