Browsing the hand-picked offerings in Urban Girl can be a journey through beautiful stories from around the world, and you always walk out with the perfect accessory or gift.
Acholi Beads brings you a video portrait of one of our first bead makers, Mama Esther. After being attacked twice by the Lord's Resistance Army, Esther fled with her family to Acholi Quarters. She struggled for more than a decade to support her family, until she found Acholi Beads.
