On a visit this Spring to NYC we saw these wonderful paper bead necklaces at one of our favorite stores ever, ABC Carpet and Home. We immediately wanted them for adelé. We learned that they were from a company called Bluma Project, and their story is as amazing as their jewelry.
Members of Bluma's team travel to Africa throughout the year to directly mentor women in advanced jewelry design. Each piece has been produced on site by a woman who was able to earn a sustainable wage and support her family, something that is often hard to come by in these locations.
