Hand Crafted Ethnic African Ndebele Photo Frame - Medium
This photo frame is hand beaded in South Africa by the Ndebele women.
The panels of beadwork on the frame are traditional Ndebele beadwork. The photo is covered with non-reflecting glass.
In beadwork women have a personal expressive form. Beads are used to decorate or even to form, clothing. Men, who mostly work on farms and in industrial centers, generally wear beaded clothing and ornaments only at infrequent occasions such as initiation ceremonies.
Women too are increasingly employed away form home and wear their beadwork less commonly. But wherever beadwork may be worn, women who use this medium to make known their personal and family status, and to demonstrate their own creativity have made it.
This photo frame is the perfect accent to any room; any photo in this frame will look spectacular.
The colors and designs of the beads may change from frame to frame, but the quality will always remain the same.
