Colorful Eco Jewelry with a Cause

Screen shot 2011-04-05 at 9.33.17 PMLooking for a colorful, easy to wear addition to your summer wardrobe? Check out Zulugrass from the Leakey Collection. The strands of colorful grass beads are versatile and can be worn with almost any outfit. Combining several strands into a necklace or wrist or ankle bracelet, offers a delicate and contemporary look, while being very durable.

The beads hold their color in salt water so they make super beach jewelry. You no longer have to pack a bunch of bracelets, necklaces, or hair ties in your suitcase because Zulugrass allows you to get several looks from a few lightweight strands.

Because they are sold individually or in multi-strand groups, you get precisely the color, depth and weight of the jewelry that you want. They have an organic look and feel with a modern flair. Get dozens of styles and color combinations with just a couple twists or some added strands.

The Leakey Collection designs also support a great cause. The company is dedicated to creating employment opportunities for rural Kenyans. It also designs new ways of working with natural materials while maintaining environmental and cultural integrity. Most of the contemporary jewelry, beauty products and home goods sold by Zulugrass are handmade by the Maasai women and men of Kenya from environmentally sustainable materials.

The Leakey Collection is available online and in more than 1200 stores nationwide.
