Maasai Wedding Necklace Beaded Pendants
The Maasai beadworkers have designed this pendant after the wedding necklace. The wedding necklace is a symbol of beauty, but some girls in their tribe are forced into early marriage and must undergo FGM to prepare them for womanhood. The women of Emayanata designed these necklaces as part of the Olmalaika collection which supports the Olmalaika Home in Kenya. The home rescues girls from this fate.
