Amani ya Juu
Turkana Bead Necklace
These elegant glass beads originate from the remote desert of Northern Kenya where the Turkana people reside. The Turkana are known for their intricate and colorful beadwork. Much can be revealed about a person through their beaded adornments - age, marital status, family association, wealth. This harmonious pairing of glass bead and brass links and chain is available in Desert Sky and Guava. 22" long.
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.
