It is a bit difficult to find the place but what they do there is amazing! They transform materials used for poaching into art! It is a bit expensive but they are funding local projects and protecting wildlife.

Jewelry made from the snares confiscated from poachers as well as currency, beads, etc. Your purchase gives back to the animals.

Jewellry made from snare wire collected by anti-poaching patrols with semi precious stone, freshwater pearls and hand carved wooden beads. A % of proceeds helps with the anti poaching patrols.

The small workshop/shop carries a wide range of jewelry - notably the pieces made from snares used by poachers - and other locally sourced items like leather and cloth bags. Prices are lower than online.
