The jewelry is beautiful. I know it’s beads and you can get them for cheap somewhere else, but I love them. I loved how I got the background on how and why they’re made. I also like how each color means something. I cannot wait to see what’s in the next box. Thank you for the coupon.
I thought that everything in this box was very unique. Well curated. Such stylish pieces. Items for the home and for the body were lovely. A+. Will be resubscribing!!!
Gave this as a gift and my wife loved all the gifts inside. Only stopped subscription as moving overseas. Thank u so much for the birthday gift that keep giving and was such a lovely surprise during the pandemic.
For $50 I was sent 2 beaded necklaces, a beaded bracelet, an anklet, and a waist beads... Really!!!! Not happy at all!!!
I am hurt to hear you are disappointed by our October box. For $45 (and free shipping) you received 5 handmade jewelry pieces from Kenya. Each one was made using a lot of time and skill. The artist are paid fair trade living wage and children in an African orphanage are fed each month from our sales. Living in a mass produced world it is easy to devalued the craftsmanship in handmade. The October box was meant to showcase the history and beauty of Maasai Beads.
Here is a breakdown of the retail value of the items you received.
Round Necklace - $30
Necklace with carved pendant- $15
Anklet - $10
Waist beads- $12
Retail Total $72
