The Sunday Summary
Well, it's no surprise that the Shop of the Week this week is Juzi. Juzi means `the day before yesterday' in Swahili, and they create jewellery using recycled beads that have been handcrafted by three self-supporting co-operatives in Kenya. The website says that 'Juzi jewellery is created from locally sourced redundant materials namely magazines, posters, calenders and bottletops. Each bead is unique and often you can see yesterday's snippets of text and pictures on an individual bead which creates wonderment as well as a beautiful piece of jewellery.' I quite agree!! The fact each bead is unique and that its been made in such an ethical way is fabulous.
