We met Dorcas in the middle of Mathare Valley, one of Kenya’s largest slums. She and some other women were sitting in a small alley/courtyard creating beaded art. In a dimly lit room behind her we found a treasure trove of jewelry, all lovingly handmade by Dorcas and the other women of her group.
Look at that smile, y’all. Beautiful and bright. And, shining in a pretty dark place. The group she meets with works together to create some of the most beautiful beadwork I’ve ever seen. They also save money together, giving each other loans and a lot of encouragement. All the while, they have Bible study together because Dorcas Creations is about more than money. It’s about changing lives in the most real ways.
And you can be part of it.
(I don’t think the name of Jane Thuo’s ministry has anything to do with Dorcas herself…just a coincidence…but I could be wrong.)
Today’s featured product is a beautiful paper bead bracelet, featuring paper beads and little brown seeds, accented with amber colored beads.
It’s perfect for fall, y’all!
P.S. I don’t really remember who created this bracelet in particular so I decided to highlight one of the women who does beadwork. Just FYI.
Designed to wrap around the wrist, it will fit most people. You can purchase it here.
