    This necklace is beautiful and right on trend in today's fashions. The workmanship is stunning. Colors and composition of materials is great. As much as I wanted to keep this necklace, it just did not work for me. It is a little tool ong with no adjustability as to length. I relunctly returned it.

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.
