Black and white dotty necklace

This fun and trendy black and white dotty necklace is made with gorgeous fair trade polymer clay beads crafted by women as part of the Samunnat Nepal project. The intricate designs are not painted on but made by arranging different coloured pieces of polymer clay to create a design that runs longways.  This is called a cane and it is based on the millefiori technique that people may be familiar with seeing in Venetian glass.

This lovely statement necklace is a short length. The beads are threaded on to a vegan leather cord and finished with an easy release snap clasp. There is a knot between each bead to hold them in place.

The Samunnat Nepal project was set up in 2007 to help support women who have experienced violence and poverty by providing legal support, income generation training, counselling and mentoring.  Samunnat means to flourish and this is the hope for the women who are given support. About 15 women work together in the colourful Samunnat studio creating the beautiful polymer clay beads which they sell to create an income to fund other project activities.

Black and white dotty necklace features:

  • Samunnat Nepal polymer clay beads
  • Vegan leather cord
  • Black snap clasp
  • Length approximately 49cm
  • Carefully packaged in a protective pouch
  • Handmade in Melbourne
