The Akoko necklace is a stylish addition to any wardrobe. Find your favorite color combo and get it today!
The Akoko is a two-strand, non-elastic necklace with a clasp at the back that allows for a fitted look higher on the neck (the better to show off your delicate collarbone!). The inner strand hangs on average at 10 inches, with the outer strand at 10.5 inches. This piece has large, narrow paper beads that are lovingly hand-crafted by women who are empowered through their work with the Life Beads ministry. Each piece is dipped in varnish prior to stringing, which means it will hold up to the wear and tear of your common fashion needs.
Be sure to pair the Akoko necklace with a matching or coordinating color combination in our earrings and bracelets. Remember, you are shopping with a purpose and we are grateful for your support. Every purchase benefits women in Northern Uganda who are working to provide for their families. Buy one for yourself or a few for friends. Thank you for your participation in this ministry.
