Story Behind the Art: Based in Maputo, Mozabique BaobArt is a cooperative of skilled artisans, seeking international markets for their handmade crafts. In recent years the artisans have found it difficuult to access international markets and collectively formed BaobArts to solve this problem. With access to markets comes the abilty to support the communities and families.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
The flower was a bit larger than I'd expected and I wish the necklace was a either a little shorter (like 16") since it tends to creep under round necked shirts & blouses (it would be beautiful as a choker) or more like 20" so it came down farther. That being said, however, it is a very beautiful piece of work and unusual.and I am not disappointed that I bought it.
