the piece| This one is so special to us.  It is the first, of hopefully many, partnerships with our team in Swaziland. Each necklace has been hand-crafted for you by Khanyisile, Pinky, Stembile, Nonduduzo, Doris and Thobekile.  We met these beautiful women this past summer as part of a design collective, Project Raiz.  With a group of 7 American designers from all different fields, we had one collective goal -  to employ and empower. Tribe is starting small, but our hope is that in teaching skills and creating jobs for these sweet ladies, we will provide opportunities and immediate resources for those struggling to provide for their families. 

the purpose| Why Swaziland? More people have passed from AIDS than any other country in the world, leaving children to raise their siblings, and an entire population without education and means for employment. 

Made of genuine leather | gold dipped chain | measures 32"
