Hausa–Fulani girl - Nigeria

The Hausa- Fulani people are on of the largest ethnic groups in Nigeria, a country with over 300 ethnic groups. The group is a fusion of the Hausa and Fulani people, whose cultures have become intertwined. 

As women, we attach so many negative feelings to our womb…we worry about stretch marks, having a flat stomach, menstrual cramps, if we’re too curvy or not curvy enough…the list is endless. What we forget is that our womb is literally the portal to life. I dare you to stand still wherever you are right now and look around. EVERY person you see-young/old/male/female/asshole or angel came from a woman’s womb. If that doesn’t make you feel powerful, I don’t know what will…

How so BEAUTIFUL are Africa’s children!

And yet so many of them grow up being told that they have to be DIFFERENT

in order to fit in with the rest who truly don’t understand the beauty that lies within our MELANIN.

How about we teach our children to never let anyone tell them otherwise so that they can grow up to be the strong black men and women that they were destined to be.

African Bead Love Bracelet like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
This bracelet is handmade for you to look just like Prince Harry or Meghan Markles love bracelets. The Prince gave the bracelet to his new girlfriend which signaled to the world that they were together. The bracelet Harry gave Meghan was made by members of his African charity. If you would like to buy one for you and one for your love, let me know. Will make it! One size fits all as it is a wrap around with three rows of beads or for him a single strand on elastic.

So this is weird, or maybe not when talking about these two people.

White copper clay is recycled copper with nickel made into a clay with non-toxic binders that are burned off when fired in a kiln. I used an ethnic, tribal design for the disks and hung fab, recycled glass beads from Africa from them. People make Krobos beads by recycled old glass by grinding it up, putting it into molds and firing it in home kilns. These earrings are super cool on many levels. They’re about 1" across and about 2.5" long hanging from silver plated hooks.
