Feedback: Beads: Ann Ohman's Zipper Jewellery, New York State, USA

When I wanted to sell my "Zipper Jewelry" at our local fair trade store (www.davidafairtrade.org), I went on-line to find fair trade beads that would compliment the style of my jewelry. I searched for a day and felt frustrated that I couldn't find what I was looking for. A continued search the next day proved fruitful, as I came across the website for eShopAfrica, and the recycled glass beads made by Okla Tetteh. His beads seemed perfect for my needs. I was also drawn to his family history of bead-making, and his use of recycled glass for his beads. I was excited to support him and his craft.

My order was handled professionally and filled promptly. I enjoyed the personal correspondance I received from the eShopAfrica team. I waited with anticipation for my package from Africa!  As soon as the package was in our home, my children gathered around me, and we spent time touching these beautiful beads that were made by hand, and we could feel Okla's spirit in each one. From the very first "Zipper Jewelry" I created with Okla's beads, I was completely satisfied and knew I had found exactly what I was looking for. While my "Zipper Jewelry" is a new concept here, they are selling well, and each one I sell includes information about Okla's hand-made recycled glass beads, as it is the beads that are the desired feature of the jewelry.

I'm honored to be a part of eShopAfrica's circle of satisfied customers. I will continue to order from them, for the experience has been far more satisfying than I had imagined.
