Malawi Series

I finished the third set in my Malawi series.This set is very similar to the ones that sold,only I have etched these giving a nice soft matte look.I have another set in mind patterened after the cloth worn by the African women called Chitenje.They use them to wrap around their heads,torso and even wrap the baby in them and attach it to their back.The pictures my niece sends from Malawi are incredible and I appreciate her sharing her 5 month experience with us.I only hope my little contribution in the way of beads can help bring awareness to her cause.If you would like to read more about the African Mother's Health Initiative here's the link:
