Demi Necklace in Sunflower by Akola Project

Styling Notes:

If you are dreaming about a fresh and exotic summer look, pair this necklace with an easy white top and one of your summer favorite bottoms.  Perfect with a simple tee and flats, or dress up your look with some added bangles and heels.

This piece features an Ethiopian hand-cast metal pendant plated with nickel/brass on four strands of hand-rolled paper beads. 

This piece was handcrafted by one of over 400 Akola trained women in rural Uganda. 100% of jewelry profits are reinvested in Akola's social mission to empower marginalized women and to transform the lives of their children in their communities.

Approximately 34" in length.

Please note that due to the handmade nature of the materials, variation is assumed and gentle care required.
