Story Behind the Art:
Working with Jedando Modern Handicrafts, the young men and women of Zakale Jewelry produce handmade jewelry using the skills of wire work and electroplating. The project first started as a garbage collection project in the slums of Nairobi. Recycling remains very close to the heart of the project. Many of the pieces used are reclaimed or recycled.
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 have made a vow to never give "gag gifts" at Christmas, and this bracelet was one of my choices this year for our family gift exchange. While many were opening packages containing socks, cheesy flower arrangements or cheap perfume, I was excited to see that a woman who had had a very tough year was delighted to receive this lovely bracelet with colorful glass beads. I am a little concerned that the silver electroplate will wear off, but, for the price, it is a wonderful way to support sustainable industry.Read More

This is a beautiful bracelet but it would have been nice if the wire was actually silver, not just silver plated.Read More
I ordered a few bracelets and they all were here on my door step before I knew it! I love this bracelet, I havent taken it off since I put it on. It is strong enough to hold up to my eight month old son who loves to pull on anything and everything. I was concerned that I would loose it because the clasp is different then your ordinary jewelry clasps, but not once has it came undone. The colors are beautiful and I have had many compliments on this bracelet as well as the others I purchased. Thank you Overstock!Read More
Got this bracelet less then a week ago and have worn it everyday and it's already gotten more attention then most of the things I wear~ I would highly recommend this to anyone!Read More
I was pleased with the bracelet. It was unique and light weight, I liked the the multi strains of wire. I was a bit disappointed in the bead colors, overall they were all subdued, somewhat pale. I thought they would be bold, bright as in the picture. Something that would jump right out, particularily with jeans, etc., It is nicely made, comfortable to wear.Read More

Very please with the purchase, great colors, great fit,Read More
