Kazuri Earrings w 14K & Vermeil Findings

Details

Please read shipping notes before ordering this handmade jewelry. These earrings were made to match a necklace listed separately. Like the matching necklace, they are made from Kazuri beads accented with Vermeil findings. Kazuri beads are ceramic beads made in Kenya by women of the Kikuyu tribe. The beads are made with clay from the Mt Kenya area lending authenticity to finished product.

The beads used in this particular piece feature real 14K gold accents. They are made from lima bean shaped Kazuri beads in a delicate shade of sage green boldly accented with 14K gold speckles. The ear wires are Vermeil lever backs as are all the gold findings used in them. They have gold seed beads as well as gold, button shaped fresh water pearls to enhance the look of these very stylish earrings. The end result is a unique pair of earrings that are guaranteed to draw attention to their wearer. The necklace they were made to match is listed separately.

In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears the financial institution on which it was written.

I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to you, the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service. Secondary shipping charges depend on what else you are purchasing. If you are purchasing more than one item at a time from my studio, please e-mail for shipping charges.

If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.

International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I will combine shipping upon request.

Insurance is optional but I accept no responsibility for damage to uninsured shipments.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The beads in this piece were my inspiration, that and the cause they support. In 1988 Kazuri became a factory and expanded hugely with over 120 women and men. Here women are trained and apply their skills to produce these unique and beautiful beads and jewelry. The beads are made with clay from the Mt Kenya area thus giving them authenticity to their craft. The factory acts as a social gathering with the hum of voices continuing throughout the day. With unemployment so high, one jobholder often ends up providing for an "extended family" of 20 or more. Kazuri is a member of the Fair Trade Act
