Zimbabwean Beaded Wall Head Decoration 'Giraffe'

These large beaded animal heads have been painstakingly hand beaded by our friend Jones in Zimbabwe. Each one is crafted using hundreds of tiny glass beads, allowing them to catch the light beautifully.

They'll look great in any room, particularly jungle themed children's rooms.

ARTISANS & VALUES

Jonathan - known as Jones - and his brother Bernard started their beadwork craft business in 1985. They began their business in Chitungwiza, just outside Hararein Zimbabwe. They started making wire toys for themselves and as time went by other parents started ordering toys for their children. This inspired and motivated them to challenge their abilities and by using their creativity they started to make more and more different animals.

Bee met Jones in 1996 in Hackney, London when he travelled there to set up a stall with his brother to sell their beaded products in Covent Garden.
