Amani ya Juu
Mali Bead Necklace
These stunning dark wood beads inlayed with brass and other metals originate in Mali. Through bead dealers, these hand-crafted beads make their way across the Sahara, through the jungles of central Africa, to the grasslands of Kenya, where they find their way to the workshop of Ms. Janet, a gifted jewelry artist. Now in the US, these beads have travelled the world and are ready to find a home with you! A statement piece AND a conversation piece on a 20" chain.
Over the years, Amani has sought creative ways to support training for the marginalized women who come through her gate. We often work with local artisans who partner with Amani to ensure that overhead is met without cost to the women. Made in Kenya.
