A trio of colorful strands delight the senses with a symphony of color. A touch of the magnificence of the sweeping Kenyan plains, all for you.

Using a tradition of superlative beadwork dating back generations, Maasai women string the the grass beads together with brilliant Czech crystals, creating attractive jewelry for you while bringing much needed income and opportunity to themselves, their families, and their community. The Leakey Collection will donate 100% of their profits from the sales of Beads for Learning bracelets to fund the salaries of local teachers.

January 22, 2014 - Beatuiful! Exactly what I wanted. People always ask me where I got it, and it's great to be able to inform them of this item, and your site :) Great cause!

November 23, 2013 - I have three strands of these. They're far more durable than I thought they'd be and I always get comments on them. The money goes to such a good cause, too. Buy some!

June 2, 2013 - Got this because it was a bit different than the other zulu grass beads. This necklace/bracelet feels a bit smoother than the others I have purchased. Love that I can wrap it several times around my wrist! I have several and love to wear to them with just about anything!

March 18, 2013 - I love these bracelets. They are very colorful and lightweight. I have had several comments about them and have referred people to this website. :) The beads are very lightweight. The bracelet is long and is able to be looped around my wrist several times. I really appreciate that I can wrap it several times and the bracelet is still loose as I have large wrists and can have a hard time finding bracelets to fit me. The only downfall to the bracelet is that since it is made of grass, it can easily snag on things and the beads may break or crack. However, I still love these bracelets and wear mine as much as I can. They support a great cause and make people curious! ~Katy :)
