No Stone Rustic Bracelets from West Africa
I love this bracelet. I spent a month in Rwanda and Uganda with a 2015 CNN Hero of the Year nominee I am helping to write his autobiography. Being a male, we never got close to jewelry. I fell in love with Rwanda and the traditional tribal dresses and skirts. I also craved jewelry. I have my beautiful bracelet on right now. It's beautiful. I love everything about Africa and always have. Now that I've been in two of the countries, my jewelry means even more.
