The story

Continent of Africa is the birth place of human and mankind civilization. It is also the place where people first wore and made jewelry. In Kenya over 40,000 years ago, beads were made from different organic materials and most of the time wood, bone and different stones were the main materials.

The tradition continues to this day. In Kenya, skilled craftsmen carve and shape recycled cow bone and wood, then they use a wax batik process to create wonderful African designs.

If you check on the beads you will see they are all individual unique pieces.

We supply them with a standard by which they are transformed into a beautiful object.
