WHO MADE YOUR WALL ART?
Jonathan - known as Jones - and his brother Bernard, started their beadwork craft business in 1985. They began their business in Chitungwiza, just outside Harare in Zimbabwe. They started making wire toys for themselves and overtime other parents ordered toys for their children. This inspired and motivated them to challenge their abilities.
Our co-founder, 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.
