Currently, we only have 2 of these beads on the webstore. Several more styles are available in the Alameda bead shop. Above we show a few of the necklaces that we've made using Kazuri beads. KAZURI, which means “small and beautiful” in Swahili, began in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting on making handmade beads to provide and sustain employment opportunities for disadvantaged members of Kenyan society. The result is top quality hand-made and hand-painted ceramic beads.
