Bought the purple one to go with an outfit that needed a bit of glitz. While the necklace is a bit heavier than I had expected, it is comfortable and very pretty.

I bought the blue and green version of this bracelet and it's beautiful. As other reviewers have said, it is large, but that's OK, it looks really nice. The stones are definitely heavy, though. The foil inside each bead gives it a metallic sheen, and the colors are gorgeous. I love how the lime green and the turquoise beads work together, even though you wouldn't expect those 2 colors to match well. This necklace would have been worth it even if it had cost $20. It has a look of quality and sophistication that is not easy to find. Keep up the good work, Toucan Krafte!

Beautiful - both color combos are stunning and they are very comfortable to wear.
Artisan: Toucan Krafte
Toucan Krafte is an artisan group made up of economically disadvantaged women from villages just outside of New Delhi, India. Besides providing the women with a much-needed steady income, Toucan also provides schooling for artisan's children, health care, and ongoing education and support. Many women are the sole income provider for their family, while others use the fair wage they receive to ensure their children can attend school and have the required books and supplies. Toucan focuses on educating women in order to break the cycle of poverty and dependence, and channels their profits into a trust that provides scholarships for girls' higher education.
Geeta, the eldest of seven children, left school early in order to support her family and found opportunity with Toucan Krafte. Although Geeta had no experience with jewelry, she completed the training program and soon began to excel in beaded jewelry and crafts. The fair wage she earns has enabled her to help support her family and to send her younger siblings to school. Geeta now teaches craft skills to other women in her community, further expanding hope and opportunity in her community.
