I appreciate the artisan's dedication to recycling; anklet is beautifully made & one-of-a-kind. Very pleased with purchase

Very cute BUT a lot of the silver is worn off showing areas of copper throughout. The worn off areas are where friction would be like it was used. There are no others to exchange it for so going to attempt to fix it myself with silver paint. Price seems high for a used item. Seller offered a return but I'm choosing to keep and attempt to fix the item myself.

About

Jewelry from the African diaspora and beyond...

A few months after graduating from college with a degree in fine art, Zoë traveled to Egypt to scuba dive in the Red Sea. While there, she collected carved beads and foreign charms. Once she returned home, Zoë began making jewelry and opened her shop Diaspora Designs on Etsy. Three years later, Zoë continues to make new jewelry with beads from her world travels.
