Kazuri Bead Factory

Kazuri is Swahili for “small and beautiful.” We stumbled upon the Kazuri Bead Factory by accident. Solo mums are hired to make awesome jewelry from Mt Kenya clay. Employment here changes the quality of their lives & that of their children. See article: Kenya’s Kazuri Bead Factory Allows Women from Kibera Slum to Build New Lives

We saw the process first hand and of course now have some beautiful jewelry.
