The Ndebele people from present day Zimbabwe & South Africa have a rich history of beadwork which was originally made from seeds, grass, and sinew.

Since the 1800’s, when Europeans introduced Czechoslovakian glass beads, this art form has taken on more intricate designs, often inspired from the colour & patterns on their famously decorated houses.

Zanele and her sister Stella, support their families by designing and making beaded jewellery, with the help of over 20 women whom they have taught their skills. One necklace can take approximately 2 days to make.
