$148.00

In stock

Designed by Mpumelelo Nyuswa named ‘Interconnected’.

The design is inspired by Kuhlangene which means connected in IsiZulu. It is a play of “Iziqhaza” or African ear piercings. Mpumelelo interpreted those patterns in a modern context. The circular and curved shapes convey a continuous cycle of life, a youthful spirit, and the fact that connection to people is the most important aspect of being human.
