Welcome to Spotlight on Africa

Updated: Feb 6

Warwick Africa Summit’s official Blog, a space to explore all things Africa, ranging from current affairs, business to culture.

This week the spotlight is on Kaleidoscope Beauty - a jewellery brand, making a difference by empowering members of the Kenyan communities who produce their handcrafted, statement jewellery.

Their original pieces are hand-made by young Kenyan artisans from disadvantaged backgrounds who are keen to improve their circumstances. The skills they develop allow them to provide for their families and avoid the prospects of a life of crime which many disenfranchised youth fall into. This ethos of empowering African communities was precisely why I was so drawn to Kaleidoscope Beauty; by purchasing their products, I was not only acquiring a fine piece of Afrocentric jewellery but I was also supporting the artisans who were making a positive change for themselves and their families.
