The balance of shining brass with colorful beads and gemstones creates a dance in design! Beads and stones are carefully threaded onto wire woven around the bottom of each pendant, creating a stunning display of the intricate attention to detail honed by each Sasa Designs artisan. The Lapis, Apatite, and Labradorite pendants drop in a symmetrical oblong circle, while the Amethyst pendant hangs in line with the chain on both sides, allowing the necklace to work a variety of ways.

Sasa Designs by the Deaf was started in 2011 to provide employment and fair wages to deaf women in Kenya. With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% nationwide, few deaf have ever had the opportunity to support themselves or explore their potential. Deafness in Kenya carries grave stigma that leads to deaf individuals being ostracized and in the worst of cases, abused.
Upon joining Sasa Designs, a deaf woman becomes an artisan – carefully cultivating a skill set that grows along with her confidence. Sasa Designs' beaders are a group of strong and proud deaf women. Long taught to be ashamed of their "disability," they have now been empowered through building a successful business and a community that lifts them up daily. With many single moms in the group, the next generation is going to soar, thanks to consistent wages, access to healthcare, and healthy food. A woman who has spent a lifetime feeling like a burden, can now take care of herself and her children. Sasa Designs is a catalyst for transformation.
