1 ½“ pendant, 21” chain
Available in brass and mixed Ankole - sustainably sourced in Uganda
Modern and artful, our Teko “Strength” Pendant Necklace elevates both casual and work-from-home ensembles. Classic arcs of brass anchor a semi-circle of ankole smoothed to a shine. Pair with the Teko Earrings to complete your look.
Each Necklace is made with love in Kampala by a survivor of human trafficking who loves working with Ankole and is proud to have it represent their country to the world. Ankole is a natural product known for unique and beautiful variations in color ranging from ivory black to caramel and gray. Like fingerprints, no two polished pieces are alike. When you purchase from ourAnkole Line, you’re empowering girls and women seeking freedom and helping to ensure a sustainable local economy in Kampala, Uganda.
Included with your purchase of the Teko Necklace will be a polishing cloth and instructions on how to keep your jewelry clean, dry, and polished. We love working with brass because it can be polished to shine–due to the nature of brass being just itself. Brass, when polished, can be a beautiful replacement for 14k gold jewelry.
