"NOT MY STYLE"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Necklace IS TOO BIG AND TOO LARGE. A RATHER SMALL WOMAN --- AS I AM --- MAY NOT APPRECIATED. ITS A SUMMER NECKLACE, SO, IT CANT BE WORN ALL THE TIME. SORRY, THIS IS AN HONEST OPINION.

"Beautiful colors!"

This necklace is perfect! The colors are beautiful and the necklace is (surprisingly) very lightweight. I appreciate that it can be worn at two different lengths. It feels very well-made. Highly recommend!

I can t wear hardly any jewelry around my neck due to pain & a condition I have. This necklace was so light & a beautiful color I wore it a lot last summer. I wish I could find it in another color.It was beaded so perfectly.It is brighter and the color was pink not purplish as it looks in the picture. I had so many compliments !!!

Sumalee has struggled for many years. She has a small shop in a local market but the sales are erratic, tied to tourism, and do not provide enough income to meet her expenses. Her Novica sales are essential to her survival and the survival of those who depend on her. She is working very hard to increase her sales.

Sumalee helps to support her mother in a unique way. She hires her mother and other older workers to help with the hand-finishing of her statement jewelry created from wooden beads.

As a child, Sumalee learned sewing, embroidery and weaving from her mother. She still practices these arts today and often teaches them to younger artisans.

Sumalee Nawakul has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $1400.

Sumalee does not have any children but she loves being an aunt. She helps her younger sister with the cost of her niece's education.
