Kazuri Beads

Kazuri Beads

Kazuri is home to hand - painted ceramic jewellery, definitely something you will not find in any other part of the world.

Kazuri's hand-painted ceramic jewellery is made in Kenya. Each bead is shaped from clay by hand, then kiln fired, hand glazed and fired again before being strung to make a necklace or bracelet. Founded by the late Lady Susan Wood back in 1975 to create employment for struggling single mothers, Kazuri now employs 350 local women. The workshop is still located where she started Kazuri 36 years ago in Karen on part of the coffee farm once owned by Karen Blixen of 'Out of Africa' fame. Karen, named after Karen Blixen, is a beautiful residential area just a few miles outside Nairobi located at the foot of the Ngong Hills between Kenya's bustling capital and the spectacular Rift Valley.
