Connecting Rural Beaders to Urban Customers

December 26, 2020

2020 was a terrible year, particularly in the Eastern Cape as it battled Covid-19, so a group of women decided to keep calm and bead on. 

Bringing Beauty to a Tough Year

A Cape Town businesswoman is matchmaking with a difference – connecting a group of talented traditional women in the Eastern Cape who love beads, and customers who love incorporating the ancient art form into their everyday wear.

The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it. Even if you’re wrinkled. – Maya Angelou

I belong to no race nor time. I am the eternal feminine with its string of beads. – Zora Neale Hurston

Every seam, every lace, every bead has been painstakingly, with love, corrected, perfected and mastered. – Zac Posen


Whether you are beading, writing, crafting something interesting or simply just relaxing, enjoy your boxing day. The weather is just fine, – blue skies, dots of clouds, lots of sunshine on the East Coast of Mzansi today
