KORA: Designing Amazing African Jewellery…

Wide Polychrome Ruma Bangles – Primary Yellow

As is now evident I have a weakness for African jewellry. I was pleased to come across KORA which means “work” in Kinyarwanda, Rwanda’s native language. KORA pieces are designed from locally-sourced recycled materials made by local artisans in Africa, mainly Rwanda, Kenya and Ghana. I like the fact that they practice trade and not Aid. Here is a peak at their Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.
