Beauty from Brutality

Discover our new Mongoose Jewelry Collection 

Handcrafted by a women's cooperative in Zambia
Mongoose Jewelry Collection
This exquisite jewelry line is inspired by life in the Zambian bush and handcrafted by talented local women. Creating “beauty from brutality,” pieces in this collection are made using snare wire removed from snare sets and cut free from wounded animals during anti-poaching patrols in South Luangwa, Africa.
 
From a workshop located on a well-trodden elephant path in Mfuwe, in the remote Zambian bush, local craftswomen make all of the jewelry by hand using natural materials from the South Luangwa Valley. In an area where unemployment is high, every piece sold plays a role in supporting the artisans, their families, and preserving the unique place that inspires their work.
Mongoose Snare wire Jewelry Collection
Featured in National Geographic and worn by the likes of supermodel Doutzen Kroes, businessman Richard Branson, stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio,  former president Bill Clinton, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, by buying a Mongoose Collection piece, you’re helping raise thousands of dollars for the vital work to save elephants, big cats, and antelope.
