Craft For A Cause: Baobab Tree Necklace for Senegal

It is always a beautiful thing when people use their talents to help others.

This lovely necklace was made by jewelry designer Meiko Takahashi of Shizendesigns. It is inspired by the Baobab tree in Senegal, a small country on the West Coast of Africa. In Senegal, the locals call the Baobab Tree "the upside down tree" because the tree branches look like roots, as though God had dropped them from the sky upside down.

The Baobab tree shape is cut within a 30-mm diameter fine silver medallion and hung on a 16-inch sterling silver Rollo chain with a 2-inch extension chain.

Meiko is donating 10% from the sale of this necklace to World Vision in honor of her sister Kari and the people of Senegal.
