FORECAST: Ursula and Anna Brosch from Pearls of Africa
What exactly is Pearls of Africa?
"A love affair between the continents, between black and white, between women who respect and inspire one another - women who try to do the best for one another."
PEARLS OF AFRICA is our heart project that we launched in 2012 as a family commitment (Ursula, Dieter, Maria, Steffi and Anna) in cooperation with the "Emmanuel Group" ("God with us"), a refugee women group in Uganda. To be more precise, PEARLS OF AFRICA is a German-Ugandan / African upcycling jewelery project or a jewelery brand with the mission "help people to help themselves". (Upcycling the African way :))
The fair PEARLS OF AFRIKA brand, well Pearls of Africa, stands for lively, African and colorful pearl jewelry and home accessories made from recycled paper.

Cleverly threaded: jewelry from Africa under the radio tower
The “Pearls of Africa” label supports Ugandan women in selling their jewelry. The products will be available from Wednesday at the “Bazaar Berlin” trade fair.
The colorful pearls shine like precious stones. It's hard to believe that they are created from printing waste, advertising papers and old calendars. The Acholi women from the Kireka slum, a suburb of Kampala, skilfully use them to make elegant necklaces, bracelets and earrings. “They earn money with the jewelry to support themselves and their families,” says Anna Brosch.
