Necklaces from West Africa
I purchased "Tropical Belle" for my sister as a Christmas gift, and she loved it immediately. She wears it at least weekly as a statement piece with work outfits, and it looks as good as new, more than a year later. The fact that it's made of recycled plastic makes it all the better. Thank you to Rita for making such beautiful, lasting pieces from plastic that would otherwise fill landfills!

Amazing piece, thick glass beads are soft to the touch and a nice weight. Multiple materials give a nice look.

The necklace always receives notice and words of admiration. I wear it with pride and a sense of fresh confidence. The artistic and skillful creation of it shines through. I love it and it has been a joy to own.
