Kazuri necklace measuring 30" long with silvertone findings. This necklace is made of 59 iridescent lavender, gray and white shale beads measuring 16mm. If you bought these beads by themselves, the normal price from Kenya (not including shipping, VAT, customs or duties) for the beads alone would be $118.00. “Kazuri” is the Swahili word for “small and beautiful.” How cool is that? I encourage you to research the story of Kazuri handcrafted Beads of Kenya. Kazuri is a member of the World Fair Trade Federation (WFTO), which authenticates fair wages, safe working conditions worldwide. They are made of clay and hand painted. Kazuri provides employment for many disadvantaged women and mothers and members of Kenyan society.
