The Akello Bracelet is made of hand rolled paper beads and a gold cylindrical accent bead and is strung along high quality elastic. The Akello Bracelet is available in colors that coordinate with a variety of other bracelets- perfect for stacking! Combine this bracelet with different styles, colors, and textures.
The Akello bracelet is named after several women in the bead room! Akello is an Acholi name. People have two names, their Acholi name followed by their Christian or English name. Many of our bead ladies have the Acholi name, Akello, followed by Christian names such as Scovia, Beatrice, or Lillian. When you buy our jewelry, the tag has a photo and the name of the woman who created each piece! We ask you to take this opportunity to pray for the women. Head over to our "Life Bead Ladies" tab to read more of the women's stories!
