'I craft each bead I use for my jewelry by hand and string the beads into necklaces and bracelets.'

"In Memory of Collins Amanatey Korle" is a beautiful collaboration to preserve the artistry of Collins Amanetey Korle as... well as to benefit his family. But the truth is that we’re still devastated – his death could have been prevented had he not been refused treatment. We all rallied in his support – including some of you NOVICA customers – in different ways and from different corners of the world. We created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his much needed dialysis. NOVICA artisans collaborated by handcrafting his jewelry – we provided the materials, and sometimes artisans used some of their own materials - when Collins was too weak to work and provide for his family.

Then, suddenly, there was a problem with the dialysis and the procedure he required to save his life was denied because he didn't have the $300 needed for the procedure, which is nearly the equivalent of one month’s average salary in Ghana. It was the middle of the night, banks were shut. Kwabena Darko, director of NOVICA West Africa, would have provided the money when the banks opened. Hospital staff didn’t believe it – did they even care? We are all very angry – they let Collins die.

In Collins honor, we are trying to transform our anger into something beautiful – as beautiful as his jewelry designs. The artisans that came to his aid in life are now committing their time and effort to continue his work – to preserve his legacy for his children, 6 year old Kingston and 4 year old Candella.

And NOVICA is donating 25% from every purchase to an education fund created for Kingston and Candella. We believe this would make Collins happy, especially knowing his kids will be provided for in some measure.

This is what Collins told us about himself, when he joined NOVICA:

"I was born into a family of artists and was trained by my father to make jewelry using natural materials such as bone and horn. My name is Collins Amanatey Korle and I'm from Ada Foa the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. I have been making jewelry since 1994.

"My formal education was in electronics however, I had more interest in the arts so right out of school I joined the family workshop and worked with my father for eight years. I have a natural talent for the craft and as I spent more time with my dad in his studio my interest increased. I was intrigued by creating something out of nothing. I also wanted to pursue and build on what my father had started.

"Learning the craft to master it required patience and being attentive to details. Over the years I have acquired an eye for art and accuracy. My favorite thing about my craft is creating something new and I draw inspiration from nature and my surroundings. I use natural materials like bone and horn sourced locally from domestically bred animals.

"I set up my own workshop when I got married and had to relocate. Initial challenge faced in setting up on my own was acquiring a shop, tools and machinery. I had to take a loan from family and worked my way to pay it up. Although I now work independently, I still visit my Dad’s shop to share ideas on the trade and new techniques.

"I currently have a staff of two and have trained over six people who have moved on to establish their own workshops.

"I craft each bead I use for my jewelry by hand and string the beads into necklaces and bracelets. I sell at local fairs and through other artisans. I also supply other artisans with the beads I produce as raw materials for use in the different items they produce.

"I am often described as a loving, responsible and fun person to be with. I am married with two kids and I like to hang out with my family watching movies. Aside art and jewelry, I am passionate about soccer and I played for a local team a few years back. Although I hung my soccer boots many years ago, I still passionately follow the team and other local teams like Hearts of Oak, and internationally I support Barcelona Football Club.

"My hope for the future is to teach more people so that my skill can be passed on for generations. I currently teach three people. I also plan to learn more techniques and develop more skills to improve my craft."

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

Triple 'Win' Pricing

UNICEF Market offers triple win pricing, where YOU the consumer, Children from around the world, and Artisans all benefit.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.

You can learn more about UNICEF's work, on About UNICEF.
