About the Shop
“Raising each other up as women joined in a global community of strength and support, helping each other to live creative, fulfilled lives.”
Kazuri Couture is about creative women supporting each other, lifting each other up into a life of dignity and independence.
Kazuri Couture – socially conscious jewelry – is a contemporary collection of original designs handmade in the USA with Fair Trade ceramic beads which are made by women in Kenya. Kazuri, a Swahili word which means “small and beautiful,” is an appropriate name for these artistic beads.
Kazuri Couture elevates these little works of art to the level of distinction they deserve, while helping to raise the standard of living of the African women who create them. Our logo is actually the West African Andinkra symbol for independence – a perfect fit for jewelry which helps provide employment for women in Nairobi who otherwise might not have a way to support themselves and their families.
We all know great jewelry is a powerful conversation piece. Get noticed wearing Kazuri Couture and start a meaningful conversation about making the world a better place for women. Wear this socially conscious jewelry, and proudly respond to a compliment by sharing the story of Kazuri beads. I encourage you to be creative as you accessorize – add an element of purpose to your wardrobe, and have your jewelry make a statement. Let’s raise each other up as women joined in a global community of strength and support, helping each other to live creative, fulfilled lives.
