Sunshine necklace

Price $12

Wearing this necklace is like carrying the African sun's warm rays with you wherever you go.

It is made in the small mountain nation of Lesotho which has been one of the hardest-hit countries by HIV-AIDS. The sale of jewelry and basketry items made by the women there allows them to care for family members who are ill, send their children to school and simply live more normal lives.

Mama loves the simplistic yet stunning way that these necklaces are designed.
