    Story Behind the Art:

    Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets products primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya, with the children learning the craft from their parents. Products are carved by hand, using only rudimentary hand tools, out of pieces of olive wood mahogany and mpingo or African Ebony. An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to ensure the products will be available for years to come, thereby enabling a sustainable income for future generations.

  • Beautiful look but put together poorly

    I got this as a gift for my son's girlfriend for Christmas. She loved the style snd the size was fine, but as soon as as she slipped it over her wrist the elastic broke. It was obviously tied off with a cheap elastic. The maker needs to come up with a better and lasting way to secure it. I would not recommend this as long as it is put together this way.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Very pretty
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. fair to poor
    • How accurate was the sizing? good

  • Black Bone and Bead Bracelet

    I purchased the bracelet for my daughter-in-law for her birthday. As soon as she saw it she said "oh, this is totally me". I bought her the Star Bracelet. She loves stars. The bracelet is beautiful and she loves it.. It is also a perfect fit. I was also glad to read the explanation that the bones used for the bracelets are from animals that the people in Kenya eat., not animals killed for the purpose of making jewerly. I appreciated knowing that information or I may not have bought the bracelet.

  • Leopard print

    I ordered this bracelet in the leopard print. I wear it a little higher up my arm above my wrist, and it adds just the right touch of trendy animal print to my wardrobe. The bracelet fits snugly. It seems well-made--the pieces of blace bone are substantial and thick. They're also curved on the underside, so they fit against the skin smoothly.

  • Lovely Ethnic Bracelet!

    I ordered two of the Bone and Bead bracelets and love them! My wrist is a tad larger and the bracelets fit very nicely. Although the design on my bracelets is a little different from the one pictured, more white less black, I'm pleased with the bracelet as a whole. The beads in between the bone add a nice touch to the overall appearance of the jewelry. I'm so pleased with my purchase that I plan to add a couple of the leopard print bracelets to my collection too!
