This necklace was created at the Caring Hands Center in Kampala, Uganda.
The intricate silver and gold colored pendant is handmade from a decommissioned Finnish coins: markka (24 mm) and 50 penni (25mm) in diameter. It is attached to an adjustable black cord.
The designs are hand cut from coins and varnished. The handcrafted process involves several people and steps to complete.
The profits from sales support the empowerment of women and youth in Uganda.
