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. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or African ebony.
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.
All carat weights and measurements are approximate and may vary slightly from the listed dimensions.
Items were processed and shipped FAST. They were exactly as shown. But here's the more interesting part: there's always a bit of skepticism when a merchant here in the U.S. is selling inexpensive items, claiming they're authentic craftsmanship of another culture. But when I gave these bracelets to my significant other, she was giddy because they were identical (though different colors) to ones she had purchased IN KENYA last year on a trip!
These are really pretty-very colorful, made well, and hopefully will help those who made them. I ordered them because I was looking for a replacement bracelet for one that was made in South Africa. Although they come in a set of 3, one looks really good when worn alone. I like the red, blues, and blacks the best.Because they are somehow attached to a rubber base, when shipped, if they get very cold , they seem very hard. Just warm them up with your hands and they are very pliable and comfortable. I gave them as gifts and everyone liked them. I kept a few for myself.
These bangles were a big disappointment because some of the beads were protruding with no way to realign them and there were several spaces where you could see the rubber beneath which holds the beads on.
I purchased these along with other similar pieces for gift baskets to be reffled for a scholarship fundraiser. When I saw how beautiful they were, I ordered more to give to all the young women in the family at our next family gathering..

Black Massai bracelet bangle came apart after two days. The others, Red & Green or ok. Do I need to ship back or can it be replaced. The cost to return would not be worth it.lcjack on Feb 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
