Overview & Details

Akola "African Queen" Lapis, Pyrite and Karatasi Paper Bead Bracelet
Vast. Diverse. Beautiful. This bracelet has a lot in common with the African continent. It's a striking statement look brought to life through a partnership between women in Uganda and women in Dallas, Texas. See that inspired union in the way its array of gems and beads join to form one bold design. A wonderful way to claim a regal style domain.

Design Information

  • Stretch bracelet has lapis beads that transition to wood beads
  • Pair of pyrite rondelles flank single, gold-color, rondelle-shaped Karatasi paper bead
  • Thin goldtone disc-shaped spacers

Good to Know

  • Due to the composition and natural properties of mined gemstones, the product image may show slight differences to the actual stone in color saturation, tone, hue or other gemstone characteristics such as phenomena, color banding and color matrix.


  • Gemstones and pearls are sometimes treated to enhance their natural beauty. To learn more and find out about care instructions see details.

A desire to empower women galvanizes Akola founder Brittany Merrill Underwood. It's a calling that's led the socialpreneur to Uganda and Dallas where Akola, which means "she works" in a Ugandan dialect, fulfills that mission. In both places, women create distinctive jewelry featuring surprising materials like recycled glass and handrolled paper beads. In doing so, they become agents of change in their families and communities. Be part of the movement. Redesign your wardrobe with jewelry that has the power to redesign lives.
