Jewellery with Samunnat Tibetan beads

I've developed an obsession with Nepalese Samunnat beads, These beauties are hand made polymer hand painted beads made with such dedication by Nepalese women who have sought refuge from difficult vulnerable living and domestic situations.

No two beads are alike, so if you want exacting perfection, these are not for you.
I love the variation and the odd finger print. I find that simple is best when designing with these to let the beads speak for themselves.

You can buy the beads from Antelope Beads in the US. The earrings are listed in the Sasha + Max Made it store
