Elegant African jewelry and accessories

Our products are meticulously hand beaded by a carefully selected team of artisans who take pride in their work.

This project is a source of pride for us because we do not only get to bring these exquisite pieces to the world, but we also help to empower the young women we buy from, who support their families with the income generated from their sales. We strongly believe that Africa needs jobs instead of aid, and we are blessed to be able to contribute, albeit on a small scale, towards job creation.

We are inspired by the majestic cultures of Africa, and we hope that through this project, we are able to showcase products that speak to the cultural nuances of the different ethnic groups each piece represents.

    I am South African and Zulu by birth. My motivation for opening this shop is to package African arts and culture products for the world to appreciate, and to create a platform for artisans to earn a living through practicing their craft.
