My newest statement necklace comes from a Congolese jewelry maker on one of the historically “coloured” beaches in Cape Town. It was about $30 (I know, way more than I spend on anything), but its so gorgeous and will look so breathtaking on a black dress 🙂 I love it, I will cherish this piece of work foreverrrrr.

Sidebar: I cringe every time a South African uses the word coloured, it will take some getting used to :/ (Of course the term colored does not mean black in South Africa, it refers to the mix of Indonesia, Malaysian, and Dutch that came to be in mid 1600’s when the Dutch colonizers began having babies with their slaves)

Thank you for your attention.
