Kalahari Bushmen have, for centuries, adorned themselves with ostrich egg shell and found objects – grasses, metal, glass.
Meet Anna Haber, a jewellery marketing exec, and Sabine Roemer, designer. Weave together the ingenuity, skills, and disparate aesthetic visions these women of Africa and Europe bring together, and you get jewelry pieces that are more than objects. These lovely necklaces and bracelets embody an environmental context that is pure Kalahari Desert; they recall a way of life that is a mere echo of what it once was; they conjure a distinctive Bushman vision of female beauty; and they delight with their European fillips – the velvet ribbon, the bow, the chain link.
