Amethyst GAIA Necklace
About the product
Detachable pendant made of Amethyst and hand-cast bronze “poid Baoulé”.
The story of how these beads are made is fascinating. They are a work of art...by nature. “Terre de Niger” termite beads originate from the deserts of Mali and Niger. They are a natural byproduct of the seasonal termite mounds that appear in the Delta riverbeds. They are naturally shaped by termites and collected by women.
This beautiful collection of jewelry is an initiative by a social enterprise that aims to create economic and professional development opportunities for low-income women based in Ivory Coast.
