Today we would like to introduce one of our newest colors for spring.
“Mac’s Maua” features bright pink grass interspersed with small white, silver, and clear glass beads. Not only are we offering this newest colorway to our wholesale customers, but also as an Eco-Chic 2-strand set on our retail site. Maua means “flower” in Swahili, and this strand was named after an outstanding young lady who is nicknamed “Mac.”
Mackenzie is the daughter of Bruce and Phyllis, owners of Finer Lines, our rep group based out of Portland, Oregon. Here is a little more about the namesake: Mackenzie is a freshman at the University of Minnesota studying Political Science and Psychology. Her interest in all things global started years ago when she became aware of the importance to recycle locally and grew in her awareness of the needs of underdeveloped nations and her willingness to pitch in to those causes. She was an officer in the Global Awareness to Action (GATA) for 3 years in high school, helping organize and run fund raising events such as “Work for Water.” This raised funds for Charity Water which focuses on building wells in impoverished communities. She also worked on “Pachanga,” a fundraiser for Seeds for Hope, dedicated to education in Peru. Her other passion for the past 10 years has been all things theater. She studied, performed in numerous school shows and on the main stage at the local children’s theater, as well as interned for a year at the Northwest Children’s Theater. Her plans are to finish her undergraduate education and go on to law school to put some local bad guys in jail.
