The Kazuri Story
Karibu - the Swahili word for "Welcome". And so Karibu Beads welcomes you to the beautiful hand-crafted Kazuri beads from Kenya. Read more about the Kazuri Story and how these incredible beads are made. For me, each Kazuri bead bears the imprint of the woman who has put her heart and soul into her craft. Touch a Kazuri bead. You can feel the quality and appreciate the uniqueness of the bead. I hope you enjoy your Kazuri experience!

Purple Haze

Stunning Wire Wrap Necklace
The very talented wire wrap artist Debbie Benninger of ID Jewellery and Designs in Alliston Ontario, created this beautiful necklace using the Apple Green Kazuri Pendant as the focal point. I am shopping for the perfect outfit to wear it with for spring.

A pretty necklace with purple flair. I loved the purple Kazuri beads with the rainbow finish the first time I saw them, and had to immediately create something wonderful with them. It also includes some awesome vintage beads that I found at my favourite antique store.
This one of a kind necklace is made with Pansy Kazuri Beads with pearlized finish, Vintage plastic leaves and flowers, and purple Czech glass flower beads. The Pansy round beads are 10-12mm and have a rainbow or pearlized glaze. The clear plastic leaves and flowers are upcycled from a Vintage necklace. The Czech glass flower shaped beads have a crystal bead at each end to add a bit of sparkle! And to finish it off, a silvertone toggle clasp with a sparkly purple rhinestone inset.

This gorgeous bronze necklace reminds me of the vibrant colours of Kenya. All of the luscious browns that are reflected in the earth, the wild animals and the trees. Oh, and the coffee!
There are 18 beads on the necklace. The clasp and all of the findings are antique bronze, nickel free metal. The necklace is 20" in length.

Wisdom and owls go together like wine and cheese, or sun and sand. Traditionally, the owl is a symbol of wisdom. Did you know there is a festival of owls in Houston, Texas every year? Now, that is serious owl love!
These sweet owl earrings are made with Samunnat hand made polymer clay beads on sterling silver ear hooks. The owl bead is approximately 12 mm or about 1/2 of an inch.

A beautiful necklace that shines with Hope! I fell in love with this pink elephant Kazuri pendant and then found the clasp. They just seemed to go together. I really love that the clasp with the word HOPE engraved is universal; it speaks directly to the aims of Kazuri which is to create hope and opportunity for the wonderful women who make the beads. It can also be a powerful symbol to those facing or surviving illness. It also creates Hope for me that our precious elephants in Kenya and other places in the world will thrive and endure the multiple threats to their survival. So much Hope!

This gorgeous necklace is made with 10-12" Round Matt Turquoise Kazuri beads and a stunning antique pendant.

This simple but elegant pendant necklace uses a Samunnat Pineapple Bead made from polymer clay.
