Look South For African Design Inspiration In Jewelry and Other Arts

South African Bashuthu home design

 Whether you create bead jewelry, knit sweaters or paint fine art, South African designs offer a wealth of inspiration. The designs convey sensations of  movement, harmony and energy: All at the same time in living color!

Notice that the antelope or kruggerand is in motion, not static.

The black and white borders in colorful Ndebele home designs are a quick intarsia knit sweater project.

There's great color harmony in this Lestho design from South Africa! I think that the window looks like a faceted gemstone.
