'Courage' Sterling Lava Bead Necklace | Sterling Silver

'Courage' Sterling Lava Bead Necklace | Sterling Silver


In 2002, Mount Nyiragongo erupted 20km north of Goma in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This eruption destroyed more than forty percent of the city, including schools and hospitals, leaving about 120,000 people homeless. The remnants of the eruption can still be seen today with lava stone covering much of the landscape.


These special edition pieces were created to honour the courage, strength and resilience of the communities surrounding Mount Nyiragongo and to raise funds for The Tchukudu Kids Home in Goma. 50 percent of the proceeds from these pieces go directly to the children helping to provide food, safety, shelter and most importantly love, for over 140 children. We thank you, it means the world to us!

  • About this necklace

    The sterling silver lava bead in our 'Courage' necklace is cast from real lava. It hangs on a delicate cable chain. Our cable chain is fully adjustable and can be customized to any length up to 22" making it the ultimate piece to layer with. Make it 22" one day and 16" the next, endless possibilities.

    This piece was designed in collaboration with The Art of Courage (TAOC). The Art of Courage is a platform for storytelling through art to create awareness, educate, advocate, and raise funds to change lives. TAOC funds various projects to empower local leaders to help the most vulnerable women and children.

    We are in love with our adjustable chains. However, as with all special jewelry, they require love and care. Please be sure to remove your piece before bathing, swimming or doing messy labour.
