Buy African: Statement Necklaces

Accessories are this girl’s best friend. Drawing them, making them (way back in the day), working with people who design them and of course, wearing them! I love a good pair of dramatic earrings but, when it comes to really making a statement, nothing beats a fabulously bold necklace. These are a few on my wishlist (from top): Pichulik; Nyumbani Design; Mikuti; Pichulik; Dannijo; Christie Brown.

Inspired: Nyumbani Design Accessories

Nyumbani-Designs-Wooden-Jewellery

Nyumbani Design jewellery is inspired by the beauty and colours of the Swahili coast. Handcrafted by skilled artisans in Tanzania, using locally-sourced wood from indigenous trees, no two of the playful pieces are the same. For every wooden piece you buy, a tree will be planted in Tanzania to restore and support the plantation of trees in rural communities.

You can purchase the items shown here from Darkroom.
