Obwaagazi statement necklace
The Obwaagazi collection is a playful collaboration of carefully selected, environmentally conscious and ethical materials. Combining my signature water cast pewter and *Eco resin pieces with natural cork cord and handcrafted Ugandan paper beads. Paper beads are a traditional Ugandan craft and are made by wrapping long strips of coloured paper tightly around a needle, they are then coated with a clear glaze to make them durable. The beads used in my pieces have all been made by Ugandan artisans who have children with disabilities and are supported by Obwaagazi Childrens Foundation.
10% from the sale of this piece will go directly to Obwaagazi Childrens Foundation and will help to provide education for children with disabilities in Uganda. Visit their website to understand more about the important work they do obwaagazichildrensfoundation.org
*Eco Resins replace some of the petroleum based components found in standard resins with renewable plant-based carbon. It also uses bi-products or waste products of other industrially important processes helping to reduce the environmental impact of the end product.
