Choker - One Africa (yellow)
The colorful mix of African beads, large and small, combine to create a bold choker design. The multiple strands of small glass trade beads have a drama all their own. They are made in Ghana, referred to as "Christmas Beads". Guidemore used large African Kopal beads and recycled green glass beads made in Ghana for drama and aesthetic balance.
Designed and hand made in Cape Town by Guidemore Chigama. Trained as an engineer in Zimbabwe, Guidemore is self-taught and produces necklaces laden with new patterns, colors and designs of his own. He uses recycled glass and old African trading beads as well as upcycling found objects to create contemporary unique one-of-a-kind pieces.
