Traditional craft combines with precious metal in this classic design. Each lightweight pendant is forged from recycled aluminum in the slums of Kibera, Kenya and hangs from 16 inches of 14kt gold-filled chain. We've added a recycled paper accent as a reminder of your jewelry's African roots. Each comes on a beautiful card and its own hand-sewn jewelry pouch.  

Material: 14k gold-filled chain and aluminum

Size: 16" chain

The Story: Acacia Creations was founded in 2007 by Maura Kroh. During her work in refugee camps across Africa, Maura constantly noticed the natural artistic talent of the residents and the beautiful hand-crafted items they produced. At the same time, she also noticed the frustration of artisans with no outlet to sell their crafts and no way to generate income from their work. And so Acacia Creations was founded as a way to connect artisans with the global consumer marketplace. Acacia Creations mission has always been to improve lives in a long-lasting and sustainable way. They go beyond fair trade by creating jobs, providing training, and giving back to communities through education and healthcare initiatives. Acacia Creations works directly with hundreds of craftsmen and women at their Nairobi, Kenya studio and across East Africa to improve the artisans skills and product designs. Acacia Creations is a member of the Fair Trade Federation.
