ZuluGrass Giveaway *5 Strands* Ends Oct 8,2009


OK here is a giveaway I have been so ready to get started. The Leakey Collection has offered one very lucky Organic Girl reader 5 Yes I said 5 strands of ZuluGrass. I was given three strands for review which you can read about here on my site. I am a big fan of this collection, I like the natural earthy feel of the collection and the way you can slowly collect more and more of it to get a great effect wearing bunches or just a lite twist on the wrist. Zulu Grass - Handcrafted by Maasai women of Kenya

Philip and Katy Leakey's inspiration gave birth to Zulugrass - the beautiful jewelry handcrafted by experts, the Maasai women of Kenya. Zulugrass continues to provide much needed and desired opportunity for these wonderful women and their families.



Zulugrass strands are made from natural grasses , dyed with low-impact , color fast dyes, interspersed with Czech hand blown glass beads. The environmentally sustainable harvest of the grass also works to preserve a wetland , since the communities no longer burn the grass , which the cattle do not eat to make plentiful grass that cattle do eat.

The beads are color checked , dyed, and stored by color. They are then combined into kits with lengths of elastic and Czech beads. These kits are transported by bike to various work stations around Kenya. The Maasia women assemble the necklaces , sitting on the ground under acaia trees. This allows them to work closeto home, to bring their children to work and to lead their traditional lifestyles. This amazing jewelry made by the Maasia women of Kenya is helping them to preserve a tradition craft and provide economic support .
Zulu Grass is strung with strands of colorful grass beads strung with sparkling Czech glass beads for a stunning effect.
