Around my Neck

The Kinship Woman

Smart, Independent, Original


The Kinship Stories Woman

Effortlessly standing out, and comfortable with that. If you see her on the street, you cannot look away; her style, her feel and of course her jewelry..

Strong despite her fragility, she is confident and selfless at the same time.

An intellectual since her teenage years, she is an avid traveler. During her trips, she loves to talk to people, get to know them, and discover the arts and crafts they make.

Of the cultures she meets, she always keeps a memory -around her neck and in her heart.

Are you a Kinship Stories woman?
