Navy Beaded Tassel Necklace
This intricate tassel necklace was handcrafted by Bessina, a Sudanese refugee. The timeless combination of navy and gold beads will add polish to your wardrobe this spring.
Bessina, a refugee born in Sudan, learned how to create beaded jewelry while spending many years in a refugee camp in Ethiopia where she and her family longed for a better life.
In 2017, she and her husband and seven children were given permanent refuge in Houston, Texas. In February 2019, she suffered the loss of one of her children. Bessina is adjusting to her refugee life with the help of Mercy House Global, who is providing her with dignified work.
