Kifungo Single Tassel Earrings

Kifungo Single Tassel Earrings

£41.00 GBP

These tassel earrings from our Pembetatu collection are made from glass beads, woven into suede.

Pembetatu :: Triangle 

The triangle, or pembetatu, decorates the painted faces of young Maasai boys on their journey into adulthood, and features in silver charms that hang from beaded adornments worn by Maasai women.

Symbols are a visual representation of philosophy, and the triangle is one that can be used to convey balance. We dedicate this collection to the pembetatu to symbolise our hopes to balance preserving traditional Maasai beadwork with bringing a contemporary aesthetic to our designs.

MATERIALS

Round beaded suede earrings with sterling silver stud fastening, decorated with long glass beaded tassels.

SIZE

0.7" round, 6.25" long beaded tassels

SHIPPING
All of our pieces are handmade in Tanzania to order. Please understand that due to the time it takes to craft your piece and to ship from the African continent to your doorstep, it may take up to up to 4 weeks (or, in rare cases, slightly longer) for you to receive your order. We have many busy hands on deck who do their best to get your order to you as fast as possible.

ONE OF A KIND
Your chosen piece is 100% handmade by one of our 120 Maasai beaders in Tanzania, so no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. With different hands crafting each piece, we celebrate the uniqueness of the slight irregularities and differences between them, truly making them one of a kind.
