    The Coptic Cross was originally created in Ethiopia when the Christian church came into Africa, and is actually a combination of the traditional cross and the Egyptian ankh. Though several different cross patterns exist, these cross designs were chosen exclusively for Wisteria. Every necklace is a little different because they're strung in recycled, paper-wrap beads.

    The Akola Project is one of five sustainable development initiatives of The UAPO (Ugandan American Partnership Organization). Since 2007, the project has empowered more than 200 women in Uganda to uplift their families and communities through income-generating crafts, such as jewelry-making, combined with village savings and loans programs. Akola (Akola means "to work" in the Luganda language.) Project sales provide fair wages to the women, many of whom are widows and HIV-positive, so that they can afford medical care and school fees for their children. Additional proceeds contribute to funding The UAPO's other projects, which include drilling water wells and building vocational centers throughout Uganda.
