These 3 pieces are a collection that pays tribute to the creative power of African people and how the use and trade of beads has been so significant in Africa’s history and culture.
Designed in collaboration with Beauty Maswanganyi, a master beader, the collection seeks to reflect the contribution of San bushmen with their ostrich shell beads, the African blacksmith who made cast bronze beads, the Mozambican precious natural resources with hand carved timber beads, West African communities who used cowrie shells as currency.
Coral and amber, both rare and beautiful, and symbolizing status, investment and fertility are majestic additions in the creations.
