Handmade Kantha Graduated Bead Statement Necklace
Description

Product Details

: 1027-P-MK007994

This colorful selection of recycled Kantha beads alternate with tiny golden beads to form a graduated strand that crescendos at the center of this necklace. Each piece is made from recycled Kantha textiles, so colors and patterns are all one-of-a-kind and will vary; order in multiples for a vibrant display. Sustainably handmade by women artisans in India. The Story Behind the Art: There are over 700 incredible women artisans in India and Bali that bring these jewelry designs to life, finding a path out of poverty through fair trade. They transform the scraps from Kantha quilts, which are made from worn cotton sari and are a traditional textile found in abundance in India, into beads for jewelry. This provides new life to a textile that is often discarded. Each Kantha bead has a base made of wood, carved out of scraps gathered from a local furniture factory. We, and the artisans, love sustainable sourcing! Artisans then hand cover each wooden bead with a colorful piece of Kantha fabric, attaching them securely with a safe adhesive. Excess fabric is trimmed off, and the bead is complete. They are then strung together until they are transformed into one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings or bracelets. The beads are assorted so the final piece of jewelry has a unique array of colors and patterns.

Measures 22 with a 2.5 inch extender.
