Happy Holidays with...The Leakey Collection!

Like lots of women, I love a little sparkle.  I also love it when my sparkle sparks a little something good which is why I am so happy to share The Leakey Collection with you.  Before I gush about the fab new necklaces/bracelets/hair ties I have been sporting (which I WILL do don't you worry!) I want to tell you where they came from and how they came to be.


Founded in 2002 by Katy and Philip Leakey, The Leakey Collection  combines the Leakey's talent for design and the arts with their love of nature to create beautiful jewelry.  Best of all is that the jewelry from the Leakey Collection is created by the women of Maasi and men of Kenya from environmentally sustainable materials.  This jewelry is gorgeous, made from strands of colorful grass beads and strung with sparkling Czech class beads.  The craftsmanship is amazing the the effect is truly stunning.  Check it out for yourself...




I just love, love, love the detail and the originality of this Zulugrass jewelry.  Each strand can be worn alone or in groupings giving you lots of different style options.  I like to wear two or three together to create a look like this...

I have also taken to using one strand as a pretty way to tie my hair into a low pony tail.  This makes my normal "mom" look less drab and a bit more glam!   There are dozens of different colors to choose from brights to more muted selections.  
 
Check out this video to see all the fun ways you can wear Zulugrass strands!

I am loving my Zulugrass jewelry by The Leakey Collection.  Knowing my purchase helps create jobs for the people of Kenya thus allowing them to live a better live is something I can feel great about. Meanwhile I can also feel great about having some beautiful jewelry to put some sparkle into my day!

You can purchase your own Zulugrass strands by visiting the The Leakey Collection website.  The strands retail for $12.95 each and right now  if you buy five you get the sixth free...great deal!  Merry Christmas to all the ladies on your list (don't forget yourself too!).
