Lava Bead Bracelet
Locally sourced in Kenya, these porous lava beads in cream or jade are lightweight and matte in finish. Wear this bracelet alone or as part of a Fair Trade collection on your wrist. Apply a few drops of your favorite essential oils and these bracelets become the perfect source of aromatherapy to get you through the day or night! Tiny gold seed beads accent the other half this stretchy beaded bracelet.
Monica pulled Kristen Welch, MHG Founder, aside after their visit together in a slum in Kenya, and she slowly pulled up her sleeve to reveal the angry 10-inch gash in her arm. Kristen cringed at the jagged stitches while Monica explained that in a drunken rage, her husband had chased her with scissors. Monica explained that if she didn’t have her job with Have Hope her only option would be to continue in the abuse. But dignified work had given her options. Hope. Monica is one of dozens of artisans in Kenya being employed by Mercy House Global to make handcrafted jewelry for our new Fall Collection.
