Handmade Jewelry Review: Zulugrass from the Leakey Collection

Jewelry is an essential accessory for any woman, especially moms. For me, as a stay at home mom, getting dressed up with the perfect outfit, jewelry and accessories and then going out to dinner or somewhere special with my husband or friends is the best. Every mom needs that time out once in a while to help recharge her batteries and take some time without the kiddos.

Recently, a company called the Leakey Collection, sent over some handmade jewelry from their collection. They were kind enough to send me a piece from their Zulugrass collection and they even sent Stacy, our cancer mom, a few pieces from their Breast Cancer Awareness collection.

Looking around on their website, the jewelry is just beautiful, it’s stunning. It’s even more stunning in person and I’ve been wearing my Zulugrass every chance I can get and so has Stacy. We both absolutely love the design, the colors, the quality and everything else about it. All of the jewelry is very chic and affordable which is awesome. Another great thing about the jewelry is that it’s versatile, each piece can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, etc so you can mix it up any time you’d like. You could even get creative and wear the jewelry as a belt or to pull back your hair to make your look even more beautiful.

What I really love about the Leakey Collection is the story behind it and that it’s helping other women. The Leakey Collection was founded in 2002 by Katy and Philip Leakey, who have been living amongst the Maasai women in Kenya. Katy and Philip wanted to find a way to help these women by providing them with work opportunities without changing their culture. So to accomplish this, Katy came up with the idea of Zulugrass, a beaded single strand on elastic in colors that are contemporary and are assembled by the Maasai women where they are able to take their children to work with them and are able to work when they want to work.

If you’re not into the Zulugrass, the Leakey Collection offers some other beautiful handmade jewelry like Zuluwood, Porcelain, and more. They also offer other accessories such as belts, sunglass holders bangles and more.
