AFRICAN ACCESSORY –The ‘Square-tile geometric Neckpiece’

 I tend to focus on clothes and shoes (and sometimes bags) when putting my ‘look of the day’ together i.e getting dressed in the morning and a LOT LESS on accessories.

So, when market-shopping I run my eyes very quickly over the dozens of beads, necklaces, keyrings, woodcarved masks, souvenirs, bags, fabrics etc. (also partly to not get too caught up with the traders who vie for your attention, each with some sought of story sales pitch )

When I saw THIS piece-the structure, shape, geometric pattern and color- it was an immediate and instant buy. And instant gratification .

When I put it on for the second time, it was heavier than I remember but it’s that chunky effect that gives it presence and makes it quite a statement piece.

 It’s simple, chic and mysterious. It has no brand name, I don’t know exactly who made it (my guess it’s the work of an artisan) and my wish is that it’s a ‘one of a kind’ but that I’ll never know.

Bought in Dakar, MarketPlace

Keeping fashion Fun, Playful & Authentic.

I got sick of wearing my stud earrings and replaced them with these KEY ‘RINGS for FUN.

These were an instant, quirky buy from a local store (owned by a German couple) called ‘Ethnobongo’ in Hout Bay, Cape Town ( South Africa) .

Locally handcrafted and one of a kind ( they were the only pair in the store ). 1 pair of earrings, 3 keys per ear, 6 different colors.
