Gourd & Eggshell Necklaces

This handmade African necklace is perfect for adding an international and unique touch to any outfit. This necklace is made of gourd pieces that have been dried and cut and then decorated with eggshell pieces to give it a textured look. Each necklace is unique, as different women made each one. Each necklace has a central pendant, either a ring, circle or diamond, and is framed by gourd circles. Each necklace as a different number of circles ranging from 2-4 on either side of the central pendant. These necklaces pair beautifully with our Gourd and Eggshell Bracelets and Earrings.

Each jewelry piece is uniquely handcrafted by women who live near Musana Camps, Uganda, East Africa. Many of these women are single mothers, and since they live so far from any large cities or towns, there are few job opportunities and often they do not have enough money for the daily needs of their family. But we discovered that these women can make jewelry and other crafts, using natural materials that are around them. The jewelry is made using gourd and eggshells, usually considered as trash, and has been turned into something beautiful. By purchasing this item you are helping to support a Ugandan family and empowering these women to take care of their families through a skill many of them already have using the materials around them. We hope you enjoy your jewelry for many years!
