From 2012-2014, Jiggetts served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the small, mountain Kingdom of Lesotho in southern Africa. The problem she noticed was the girls’ education was not on par with that of the boys’ because they had more domestic chores. Jiggetts and her community started a jewelry business called the Tsoaing (Swy-ing) Primary School Craft Project and raised enough money to install a water pump. As a result, her girls’ test scores increased and they were able to stay in school. Jiggetts continues to source seshoeshoe (seh-shway-shway) beads from her Basotho community to create joyful moments for her customers and to embolden marginalized communities through entrepreneurship and economic empowerment.
Care Instructions: To prolong use of the jewelry, never sleep, shower, swim, or workout while wearing the seshoeshoe beads. Also, don't spray products on them.
