The Etana, meaning “strength” in Swahili, is handmade by Favour, BeadforLife’s 14th group in Kampala, Uganda. Read more about the Favour group below.

Favour Group

The Etana Necklace is made exclusively by Favour, BeadforLife’s 14th group in the Kampala Area. They are a hard working and lively group of women who love to sing and dance. Irene, BeadforLife’s membership coordinator laughs and says, “They love to sing so much they could make another BeadforLife CD!” The women come from 4 major slums in the outskirts of Kampala, and for years have been isolated by poverty and hardship.
One of the greatest benefits they have gained from BeadforLife is the support and companionship of other women. Nakijoba Annette says that she likes the women she works with in Favour because they share everything. They do business together; they roll beads together. They all work very hard.
The women of Favour selected their name because “it means good things.” Abigaba Vicky says that to her the name represents “love and peace. When there is a problem Favour can assist.”
Ndagire Florence would like to thank the women who choose to buy her jewelry. “You’re doing a great thing buying our necklaces. Because you buy them we’re able to be here at BeadforLife!”

    Beautiful

    I made a wish-list for Christmas and received the Etana necklace in bright, multi-colors as a gift. It is beautiful! I went to a bead for life event a few months ago and can”t stop talking about it. What a wonderful thing we can do to support these women! And others keep asking me about this unique jewlery, I highly recommend it.

    Extremely Versatile

    The Etana necklace is a great piece. The length makes it extremely versatile. I have worn it long around my neck, wrapped around a couple of times and have recently worn it as a belt with a dress. This necklace has become one of my favorites!

    This is a beautiful necklace, or belt

    Such a beautiful piece! I use it mostly for a necklace, wrapped several times, and so dramatic. It makes a very nice draping belt as well. It is something you”ll reach for again and again and again! I”ll be ordering more in different colors.

    My favorite necklace from bead for life

    I received my new Etana necklace today and I am very pleased with it. I ordered it in the multicolors and requested the 82 inch length. I am able to either wrap the necklace three times around my neck as a short style necklace or shape it into one short and one long necklace. With the great colors and long length I am sure that I will get many days of use out of it.

    Every day Joy!

    I have a few pair of earrings, and 3 different lengths of necklaces, then I saw the Etana on my friend. I loved it and had to order my own – Multi-color. When I am not wearing it, it lives on my desk or dresser, so I can enjoy it every day. Makes me smile, every time I look at it.

    Joyful Jewelry

    I first saw an Etana necklace on my friend, when we went out to dinner. I already had other Bead for Life jewelry, and I asked about this. She gave me the name, and I ordered. Our two necklaces are so different. Hers features mainly small diameter beads, and mine varies wildly, with many large diameter beads. Love, love, love the multicolor pattern.
