New necklace design
I am really pleased with this new necklace design which features a large zebra inspired focal bead. The challenge is to design so called 'African' jewellery in a modern, contemporary way which isn't typical tourist stuff. Of course there are some beautiful African beads and necklaces in market stalls (thinking of Greenmarket Square, Cape Town). But it is mass produced and can be found from Cape Town to Cairo. Earthbutter endeavours to create art jewellery - each piece is carefully hand crafted and one-of-a-kind.
