Beadwork

South Africa has achieved world renown for the beauty and variety of the beadwork produced mainly by rural women in many parts of the country. Ethnic differences are highlighted and celebrated through distinctive designs and colours.
Dolls or child-like figures capture the essentials of each group's identity.
