Story Behind the Artist: Paul Muragu
Paul makes his jewelry in the Westlands Market in a workshop not much larger than a telephone booth. Paul has beads from Kenya, Mali, Niger, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia and Ghana, to name a few. He makes many of the metal beads himself and buys glass beads from a women's cooperative in Nairobi that makes the beads from recycled glass.
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.
I ordered these earrings for a friend that has spent some time in Kenya and has several pieces of authentic jewelry. I hoped the earrings would live up to what she liked about African jewelry. They arrived and were perfect! They are a bit longer/larger than I expected, but I probably just didn't read the size carefully. My friend has longer hair so they were still just right. The color is a deep, dark red. The red bead is dull, not shiny and the beads in both earrings are well matched with each other. I'm very happy with the purchase!
I bought these earrings along with the matching necklace and they are absolutely gorgeous. The quality and workmanship on each piece is fantastic. The length is the perfect length if you want an earring that hangs at least an inch from the bottom of your ear lobe. They are a comfortable, lightweight earring. The color of the red amber is like a deep cherry color or not to sound gross, like the color of a drop of blood. (LOL) I'm ashamed to say that I bought these as a gift for my neice, but ended up keeping them for myself! I know, I know, I'm a bad Auntie.
However, I did buy something else for my neice instead that is just as nice. You can't miss with these earrings. L-o-v-e em!
These earrings actually look better in person. In the picture it looks like the bottom is just a loop of wire but it is actually flat like the head of a pin. I bought the earrings and matching necklace and wanted to get another necklace as a gift. The necklace was out of stock so I got the earrings as a gift. The recipient loved them
These are very pretty and I like them very much. First set I ordered was flawed....one earring was longer due to it having one extra bead in it but I was very happy to receive a replacement set at no cost to me after notifying this to customer svc. Very nice set will wear these holiday season for sure.
