the leakey collection giveaway


Today's giveaway is for 5 strands of Zulugrass from The Leakey Collection! {arv $64.75}
Open to US Only

The strand colors include: 1. Pink Hibiscus 2. Fiesta (mango tint) 3. Kimberly (a light pink) 4. Red Turquoise (red zulugrass with turquoise glass beads) 5. Lemon


What a beautiful spectrum!


Bright and dynamic, the Leakey Collection features beautifully handcrafted jewelry pieces that bring a smile to your face. Each piece bursts with color but also a surprising touch of carefree elegance. Usually, you would not expect a yellow multistranded necklace or a bracelet carved from heartwood to be defined as classic (that's what pearls and diamonds are apparently for) but The Leakey Collection brings a new, shimmering meaning to the word. Best of all, the collection's designers, Phillip and Katy Leakey, are based in Kenya where, with the help of local Maasai women, they produce these stunning pieces of jewelry.

Moreover, the Leakey family works with the women to arrange a schedule that allows them to partake in traditional ceremonies while maintaining their jobs. Adios, demanding globalization. Hello, the true meaning of community. It's nice to know that the designers are not off mass producing weak pieces in a cheap factory (the women prefer to work under trees) but rather depending on local Maasai artisans and eco-friendly materials.

Here's more info about The Leakey Collection from their About Me section:

"Using natural elements such as fallen wood, grass and porcelain, these renowned designers create unique products while protecting the environment and providing economic opportunity to the local communities."

Simultaneously sophisticated and refreshing, the Leakey Collection selections from the Zulugrass, Zuluwood, and Porcelain lines are unique to the core. Case closed.


Additional lovely pieces:



Kuponya - a gorgeous, pink multistrand bracelet. In Kiswahili, Kuponya means "to heal"and 10% of the bracelet's sales is donated towards Women's Health Research")
