The other week I stopped by the Timo Weiland office and my mind has been on neckwear-inspired jewelry ever since. This ZUBA Africa Yellow & Indigo Bead Necklace Set ($198) is such an easy way to dress up a top. Handcrafted in Rwanda the statement piece is made up of 5 fabric-covered bead necklaces. The brand itself is a recently launched venture between Linda Trau, a designer and humanitarian, and Freewinds Trading, a company that uses business as a strategy for the economic empowerment of women in developing countries. I’m loving how true this brand is staying to their roots and embracing the culture of the artisans who are hand-making all of the pieces. Click here to see more designs!
