Product info

"I first fell in love with African art and design in the late 70s in the most unlikely of places — a little shop in a suburban town just a short drive from Chicago. While the area is not exactly known for its African heritage, this palace was like a secret universe, with walls lined with beads, masks and textiles and an enchanting scent that smelled like another world and time far, far away. My mother and I would stop in frequently and I became enamored with both the treasures that I’d find there and the shop’s incredibly chic, eccentric, lovely and impossibly interesting owner. She changed my life! Along with their historical and cultural significance, these necklaces have a special place in my heart, bringing back memories of that magical lady and the wonder I felt stepping into her store. Made with gorgeous handmade beads crafted in developing communities across Africa and bought using fair trade practices, their origins are just as beautiful as they are."
