The Dotty

elva

The Dotty has us so happy - something about its haphazard painted dot decoration (a wonderful example of a celebrated craft tradition in the glass bead workshops of Ghana) in yellow and white on blue-green beads is irresistibly fun. We added a small vintage yellow African glass bead among the two strands for fluidity and uplift, and a gilt copper toggle clasps the style at back. Delightfully dotty, this is a joyful one! Measures just under 20" length, shortest strand.

 

Hand made in small batches this summer, a very limited number of this style is available.

Please designate your selection in the Gift Note section during the checkout process. If a selection is not indicated, we're happy to choose one on your behalf!


  • The Loveland Foundation - Donating specifically to their Therapy Fund, this gift will provide financial assistance to Black women and girls across the country seeking mental health/therapy services.

 

  • Equal Justice Initiative - EJI works to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality. Their efforts include legal representation, public education, policy reform, and groundbreaking research.

 

  • National Bail Fund Network - According to the Louisville Community Bail Fund (just one of 60-some funds this National Network includes) "Cash bail is one of the aspects of the criminal justice system that keeps communities wrapped up in systemic slavery and in debt." Donations will help bail out those in need AND provide support once they are released.

 

    • Change Today, Change Tomorrow - Based in the West End of Louisville, their #FeedTheWest initiative provides much-needed meals and groceries to a food-challenged population (there is one limited-hours grocery store for the entire population.)
