Hey quirky humans,
I am so excited to announce that quirky indeed along with blogger and designer Twaambo owner of Synergy bloggers worldwide are the brand ambassadors of F.R.E.E WOMAN ZAMBIA.
Foundation For The Realisation Of Economic Empowerment(f.r.e.e),is a christian organisation founded by Dawn Close.The organisation works closely with women from rural neighborhoods in Lusaka to make jewelry. The jewelry is handmade from different kinds of metals and minerals.One of the materials that fascinated me the most was the use of recycled geysers,I said it once and I will say it again absolute recycling goals.
Their main focus has been copper which is a mineral that Zambia is famous for, having the biggest underground mine in Africa located in a town called Mufulira. There is a lesson to take home with you today lol. Although they have recently included silver jewelry to their collection.
The creative combination of the metals and minerals gives their jewelry a very unique look.My first encounter with them was in April at the Health Wellness & green Living Market which you can read about HERE.I was so fascinated by their jewelry and story that I took the time to talk to one of the ladies who is involved in making the jewelry.
