A cooperative of Kenyan artisans called Monda Art transforms discarded bottle into beautiful, lustrous beads. These signature necklaces feature a chunky aluminum bead that is also eco-friendly, having been made from scrapped aluminum engine blocks.
This adaptable accessory works from season to season. Necklace measures 44" total length with a 22" drape.
Founded by Ghanian artist Martin Dartey in memory of his Kenyan wife, Carol, Monda Art takes a cross-continental artistic approach to creating beautiful works of wearable art. Beading is a major industry in Kenya that brings income and independence to women and their families. Many artisans are home-based and work in small groups, having learned beading techniques from previous generations and community friends.
