Share the love with this handmade hammered heart bracelet. Each of these African beaded bracelets are handcrafted by Khutsala™ Artisans in rural Africa. These one-of-a-kind, African-made bracelets are the perfect statement piece for everyday wear and are easily stackable. The creation process of each bead and hammered metal heart causes slight variations in each making each one truly unique.
Our SwaziMUD™ beads are handmade at Project Canaan in Eswatini, Africa by the Khutsala™ Artisans. These beads are made from African mud that is hand-rolled and then baked in a kiln for 8 hours. After the beads are hardened, they are hand glazed and then baked again for another 8 hours turning them into uniquely colored ceramic beads.
Each of these unique beaded bracelets is made with SwaziMUD™ beads. These color ceramic beads are hand-crafted by artisans in Africa. The production of these SwaziMUD™ beads provides work for men and women in a country with unemployment estimates up to 70%.
Because these beads and the metal heart on these bracelets are handmade, no two bracelets are alike. Each purchase is truly one-of-a-kind.
