Two days ago my younger brother came back from a short holiday to the Philippines. I was told that my younger sister, MamaGirl, sent several pieces of rubber stamps in exchange to the crochet yarns I sent her. I’m happy that she’s sent me rubber stamps. She knew I’m into stamping this year 🙂
In 2010, when she served a one year volunteer stint in Mombasa, Kenya . We communicated closely during her assignment there . At that time I was into beading. I was making a lot of stuff out of whatever beads that I could buy at the shops here in Phnom Penh. I didn’t actually like what were sold at the market so I asked my sister if she knew where to find pandora charms in Nairobi and if she’d be willing me buy some for me. I think she misunderstood because just two months after, when she returned to the Philippines after her assignment, she gave me this beautiful, beautiful Kenyan Kazuri beads necklace. Kazuri beads are unique clay beads handmade by the women in Kenya.
Above is a photo of the Kazuri necklace and coordinating dangling earrings that my sister gave me. Gorgeous, isn’t it? I wore it during a Christmas party in 2010. It complements well my off-shoulder dress and I received good feedback from friends about how gorgeous this necklace is. I guess I have to thank my sister for her thoughtfulness and her excellent choice. I really my Kazuri necklace and earrings – definitely one of my most treasured pieces of jewelry. I’m wearing this again when my husband and I go out for our anniversary dinner soon.
