I received the bicycles earrings and I just love them. They are perfect. Many people have already commented on them and I told them where they could purchase. They arrived when the shipper said they would and packaging was great.

It shipped here faster than I thought! The gang even sent in an extra pair of earrings! What a nice special surprise! I love the earrings! They're beautifully handmade and their customer service is exceptional! They left a cute now inside the box!

About

Worlds apart

Back in July 2012 I moved to Kenya for one year. While there I met artisans Paul and Julius. The hard work and dedication they invested into their craft was impossible to ignore.

The Ushangabox shop is where collaboration happens. Ushangabox ("ushanga", meaning "bead" in Swahili) is a portal allowing Paul, Julius & I to create and sell jewelry, while giving the buyer an opportunity to purchase fair trade, Kenyan made goods at reasonable prices!

*Half of the proceeds from your purchase will go directly to Paul and Julius.

Thanks for checking us out.
