Adara Necklace in Suede by Akola Project

Styling Notes:

Hand-crafted by one of over 400 Akola trained women living in extreme poverty rural Uganda. 100% of jewelry profits are reinvested in Akola's social mission to empower marginalized women to transform the lives of children in their communities.

A three-strand necklace adorned with Ethiopian metals separating hand-rolled paper beads. A statement piece for those who prefer the paper bead look without a pendant, or perfect for layering with Nova for an even bolder look. The longest layer is 35" in length.
