These beads have been sold in stores like The Space as fashion's take on the traditional Zulu beads sold at any self respecting Zulu traditional medicine shop. I have never seen a black person wearing the beads as a fashion statement. I think it would be confusing as to why wear them. So I've steered clear of the beads. But I think I've found a way to wear these with feeling like people might mistake me for isangoma.

Photographs by Kristy Carlson
These earrings were inspired by Tord Boontje's lights. I have been inspired by other designers or existing designs. I made these to compliment the another designer's work with the forged hook as something from me. I like to feel like I collaborating with someone. Maybe it's my personality, group work is more interesting to me. Or it's my method of working. I think these worked well. Thanks Tord!
