Add a touch of color to any look with bright and fun handmade jewelry from Kenya. These earrings are crafted with a large glass bead surrounded by coconut shell, heishi giriama beads and many smaller glass beads on hoops hanging from sterling silver hooks.

Product Features:
  • Made by the 15 young people of Zakale Creations, an organization that works through Jedando Handicrafts
  • Center glass bead, coconut shell, heishi giriama beads (the silver ring spacers) and all different kinds of glass beads
  • Beads come in various colors
  • Sterling silver shepherd's hooks
  • Earrings measure about 50.8 mm in diameter

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. An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations. While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing the products, including painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone for the handles of salad serving sets.

  • beautiful!

    these are amazing earrings, tho bigger than i'd thought. that's fine--going to make me branch out a little from my little-hoops rut. they're light weight and beautifully made. i love the "fair trade" merchandise. love contributing to this program and getting very unusual jewelry in return. great offering, overstock. thank you.

  • Good quality but larger than expected

    These earrings were well made and very attractive however they are MUCH larger than the picture would lead you to believe...they are almost as large as bracelets. Too large for me.. If you are looking for large earrings this is the pair for you.

    The hoops on these earrings were too big for me to wear. Otherwise, they were a nice pair of earrings.
