Ghanaian artisan Catherine Offei Kwapong creates a lively and colorful beaded necklace out of a unique combination of materials. The artisan alternates sese wood beads in mustard yellow and teal on one side of the necklace, and then combines those same wood beads with teal-colored freeform triangular pieces of coconut shell for the center and other side. In the middle is a large, round, brown ceramic bead etched with white lines.
Catherine is an impactful member of her community and is constantly giving back. She supports mothers and children by covering their education fees so the children can empower themselves through further education and knowledge.
Catherine Offei Kwapong has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $400.
