Kazuri Bead Jewellery

We really love our new Kazuri Beaded Jewellery. Kazuri means small and beautiful in Kiswahili and is the name given to the beautiful hand made beads from just outside Nairobi in Kenya. Each bead is shaped from clay by hand, then kiln fired, hand glazed and fired again. It is then strung to make a necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings.

In an age of mass-produced goods, Kazuri jewellery stands out as a little bit different. As every piece of jewellery is handmade, every one is unique. Indeed, they take on the quirks and trademarks of the individual people who shape the beads, paint them or string them, giving them soul as well as beauty.  So a Kazuri piece is more than an item of jewellery, it’s a piece of Kenya.
