    The Kazuri and large brass beads make a wonderfully bold design. I really like the color combination with the wood and brass beads. They help subdue the wild ones and keep them from totally taking over. :)

    Quite a dramatic piece. Are the women able to sustain themselves making these wonderful beads?

    K Ralston, I don’t know the answer to your question but here is a description of Kazuri.

    “ Kazuri, which means “small and beautiful” in Swahili, began in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting in hand crafted ceramic beads.
    Its founder started with two single motherhood women and soon discovered that there were many others in the villages around Nairobi, most of who were disadvantaged and were in great need of regular employment.

    Today Kazuri has grown tremendously and now has a large workforce of over 340 women skilled in the crafting of ceramic beads, strung into beautifully and artistically jewelry.

    Our Mission Is to provide and sustain employment opportunities for disadvantaged members of Kenyan society, especially Single Motherhood women and in order to achieve this, we must produce top quality Ceramic Jewelery and Pottery.
