Artist's Jewelry to Benefit Children and Women in Africa

I have a friend in Switzerland who for many years worked with humanitarian agencies in numerous countries that have been devastated by the ravages of war and oppression.  His latest years were spent in the depths of the African continent and now, from Switzerland, he creates wonderful jewelry.  The proceeds from the sales of his one-of-a-kind artistic creations all go to the education of women and children in Africa.  In March, 2012, he will be traveling to Bangui in Central Africa to support such a school.

This artist creates necklaces, rings, pendants, fanciful puzzles, and other diverse creations.  I know with certainty that you will find these works a visual and tactile treat.  Another friend recently visited this artist in Switzerland and purchased one of his necklaces for me.  It is magnificent.  The colors are vibrant, the assembly is flawless, and the craftsmanship is extremely fine.  Even when I am not wearing the necklace, I love holding it and running my fingers around the absolutely smooth beads that feel like cool satin.

If you would like to order any of these magnificent pieces of jewelry art, you may reach the artist at:
