Traditionally these necklaces are created and designed as gifts for the significant moments in life like a wedding and newly born childen. So it’s far from odd to feel very special if you can get your hands on one of these. They are literally one of a kind. 

Handmade by Kenyan women, creating beaded jewelry is a high art ingrained in Masai culture. To celebrate their traditions, girls start to learn to lace beads as children. Each color represents a part of their living: the white colored beats are milk which is fundamental for their survival.
