Mbale Necklace

Mbale Necklace


'Mbale' means 'plate' in Tumbuka, the language of Northern Malawi.


This simple but stunning necklace is crafted by hand from recycled brass in a solar-powered workshop using unique and traditional metal working techniques. 


We have partnered with YEWO in Malawi who believe that design should not sacrifice social responsibility. Every piece is thoughtfully made reflecting the beauty of Malawi, while creating jobs that encourage growth, financial stability and a family-like workplace.


Every YEWO order comes with a jewellery care card and a polish pad to help maintain your item. Each piece is wrapped in a linen bag and beautifully presented for gift giving or as a gift to yourself.


Made in Malawi by YEWO
