Handmade Metal Beads

'I am happy to be part of conserving our wildlife by supplying the s-clasp and metal findings to Mulberry Mongoose.' - Nason, local artisan

Using stainless steel wire and copper bought from our local hardware stores, talented artisan Nason creates over 10 thousand hand-made jump rings, beads, and S-clasps each year. With a simple pair of pliers and a saw Nason works peacefully on his front doorstep, expertly forming each piece.

Using locally crafted clasps and jump rings complements the look of the upcycled snare trap beads we create and aligns with our values of investing in the rural African economy whilst celebrating it's artisans.

These metal beads are most noticeable in our Snare Chain, Snare Link and Multi Strand Collections but are used in every piece of jewelry we craft.

Fun fact: Rural Africa is a place of vibrancy and community. When you visit our local town, Mfuwe, you are filled with joy at the bustling African village scenes. Brightly colored shops line our only tar road; from these we buy our hardware, tools and food. We love the shop names which capture the unique fun and quality of where we live. Our favorite local business names to date are, Scorpion Never Cry - selling grass matts, Wild People - selling groceries and Hope of Glory - selling basic sundries.

"Beautiful jewellery, well-made, original, and to top all of that, made from snare wire and giving a donation to conservation. There's a lot to love here!" - Penny, Great Britain
