I recently discovered a beautiful Eco chic jewelry line†by The Leakey Collection†that is handmade together by local skilled Maasai artisans of Kenya. My favorite piece is from the Zulugrass line. This contemporary jewelry line is made from environmentally sustainable materials. The gorgeous strands of colorful grass beads are dyed in a wide range of colors and strung together with sparkling hand-blown Czech glass beads that make stunning pieces. Zulugrass is extremely lightweight, durable and very versatile, since it can be worn as a bracelet, necklace, anklet and more, giving you several looks! This video†is helpful in giving you ideas on wearing it.†Itís available individually or multi-strand, which allows you to get precisely the color, depth and weight of the jewelry that you want. It has an organic look and feel but is completely modern. I love how different this jewelry is from any other pieces I own. It is truly unique and special.
The Leakey Collection was born out of a devastating drought in Kenya back in 2001, which devastated the Maasai people. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the collection goes to help support this nomadic tribe.† Click here†for additional details.
