Africa adorned May 16, 2013 19:15

In Africa,we have a great choice of organic material available for adornment , we leave gold ,platinum...tanzanite to the fine jewellers, and the Swarowski crystals to the bling addicts ! 
The challenge is to create glamour with humble elements ,wood , glass, horn, shell, rubber , gem stones ,rope, textiles.......but it is possible !!
