It's lunchtime, and chance to get a quick post out having spotted this striking necklace on Made's site. All of the jewellery sold by Made is designed by influential names, with the materials sourced and the jewellery made entirely in East Africa. Then sold through Made, the profits give the makers a fair wage and help them break from the cycle of poverty. It's a big scheme, but one which has been working well for several years now.
The Hasina necklace is a great example of the pieces you can expect from Made. Designed by Pippa Small for the MU (Made Unique) collection, the necklace is 9ct gold plated brass, with recycled glass beads. Kind of tribal, kind of like little petals. Lovely!
