Featuring a fabric hoop affixed to a stud, the Nkazimlo earrings is a dramatic update of the Nontuthuzelo earring.
Using a wrapping technique in a contrasting thread colour, the shweshwe fabric is manipulated to form an arch, which can also be reshaped into a circle.
The print seen here Nomi Handmade calls polkadot for its red and white spotted pattern.
Lightweight, playful and stunning…
Nkazimlo means heavenly or eternal light in Xhosa.
