From our small workshop in the Zambian bush, we're creating beauty from brutality for customers all over the world. Here's what some of them had to say.
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for my beautiful jewellery that you all made for me (and my brother) and even for the cute little pouches that the items were packaged in. I am delighted with my goodies. They are even better in real life than in pictures. And to think it's all for a good cause. I especially love the earnings and can see them getting a lot of wear! Great work."
Suzie - Perth, Australia
"Absolutely everything about what you and your amazing team have done to make this special birthday gift is spectacular. The bracelet, the green fabric pouch, the coin, the personalized notes, and the video from Phelida! Wow!"
Robby - California, USA
"The bracelets arrived on Valentine’s Day to be the most perfect gifts for my girls, and friend Sharon. I was surprised it was less than 2 weeks from order to arrival. I really had no clue how long it would take. Don’t be shocked when a few more orders pop up from me. Thank you to Naomi for her lovely work."
Annette - British Columbia, Canada
"My lovely snare wire bracelet arrived this week. Please especially thank Naomi for making it. She did a superb job and I will always treasure it as a reminder of the special time I spent in the Luangwa."
Trevor - Kent, UK
"Love the turquoise heart necklace, my bespoke bracelets are perfect (just what I imagined and the sizing couldn’t be better) and yet more fab wee chitenge bags for my collection.
Thank you to everyone involved for the thought, talent, hard work, time, love and care that so obviously goes into all that you do, and for the part each of you play in supporting the work of those looking after Zambia’s precious wildlife, all while creating beauty from brutality!"
Kirsteen - Western Australia
"I received my bracelets yesterday. They are splendid. Thank you to Naomi and the team for their hard work, creativity and dedication. I visited South Luangwa on photo safaris in 1985, 1996 and 1999. I have much cherished and very special memories. Keep up the great work."
John - Devon, UK
"I just received my stunning turquoise snare bracelet! I just wanted to thank each of you and especially Naomi for doing this wonderful work! I am truly inspired by what each of you do! You are protecting the amazing wildlife of Zambia, and you are each showing that something so terrible like a snare wire can be turned into something so beautiful. It is really quite amazing.
Your influence truly does spread across the world even to California. I will wear this as often as possible to remind myself to continuously work towards making this world a better place. Thank you."
Kennion - California, USA
I received the jewelry this evening and it’s even more beautiful in person than online! I am so excited to wear one of the earrings myself and can’t wait to give the others to my friends as gifts. Now I just need to decide what else to order…
Hillary - North Carolina, USA
"Oh my, oh my, oh my ... my necklaces arrived today and they are beautiful. Especially the lapis organic element snare bracelet/necklace. Wow, it is more attractive than I could ever have imagined! Honestly, the best ever, gorgeous beyond words. To say I love it is an understatement. My firm favourite!
Thank you so much for personalising it for me with Lapis Lazuli. The accompanying note from Naomi is the cherry on the cake, such a sweet personal touch. I'm absolutely delighted and feel very blessed to have the honour of wearing something so exquisite and ethically handmade"
