We love this statement-making Yeyo warrior cuff, available at Asilia Africa's Matemwe and Sayari camps in Tanzania. It's made by local Masai women, who work with Sidai Designs, a company established to market the work of artisans. 

The idea is to preserve traditional craftsmanship and, at the same time, create sustainable incomes for the women. It's no surprise that Asilia would jump at the chance to bring this unique handmade jewelry to their guests: The pieces are right in line with the simple but soulful design of their 20 East African safari camps. $45
