The Leakey Collection was founded in 2002 by Katy and Philip Leakey. Their work includes the design and manufacturing of contemporary jewelry that is hand made by the Maasai women and men of Kenya from environmentally sustainable materials. Their most popular item, Zulugrass, is sold in individually or in multistrand pieces that allow you to get precisely the color, depth, and weight of the jewelry that you want. It is designed to have an earthy and organic look and feel while still looking modern.
Review: I received some wonderful Zulugrass Jewelry to review. From the way it is handcrafted to the colors and versatility, I love everything about this jewelry. Each strand is extremely light weight so I did not feel weighted down by heavy jewelry. I absolutely love how you can wear the pieces in dozens of ways. You can wear one strand at a time or combine them for a unique look.
Check out how awesome a variety four colored strands look twisted into a bracelet:
My husband almost never comments on my jewelry but when I wore the strands as a necklace, he actually took notice and told me how beautiful the piece was. I can't wait to continue to wear the jewelry in new and fun ways (headbands, ankle bracelets, hair ties, etc)! Plus, this is a type of jewelry that will not go out of style. It looks wonderful with colored clothing or draws extra attention to it's beauty when paired with a simple white or black outfit. This jewelry is definitely a winner.
