These pendants were designed by EDUN and produced by URU Diamonds, a jewelry company based in Tanzania. In May of 2013, EDUN Creative Director Danielle Sherman traveled to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to meet Uru founders and explore collaboration possibilities. The stones are sourced from Tanzania and the cords are hand-knotted in a technique identical to that used by fisherman to create lines cast aboard the dowhs sailing the East Africa Coast. This is a first time collaboration between Uru and EDUN.

The result was three precious stone pendants that debut on EDUN’s runway show during NY Fashion Week in September 2013.
