To the Maasai of Kenya, long beaded earrings tell a woman's story without her uttering a word.  Blue beads symbolize God (for He inhabits the sky) and green the earth after a rainfall.  Buttons on her earrings say she is mother to a circumcised son.  The earrings themselves proclaim that she is a wife.   Our story? Still fascinated after all these years, we sought to create pieces that would dip just a little into the color and texture of Maasai life.   Feel beautiful.

    They are amazing! I want to go to Kenya one day and learn firsthand about their adornment, and their fascinating society. Thank you, Dimi mou!

    Hi Sophia!
    The Maasai are such a noble people. How timely your post with yesterdays gold medal Olympic victory of a Maasia tribesman of the men’s 800m?!
    Best,
    Dimi
