Made by a Mzungu creates beautiful resin-covered jewellery pieces - pendants, brooches, earrings, rings, cufflinks, mirror compacts, fridge magnets and framed pieces using postage stamps, photos, vintage wallpaper and fabric.
I've been a "craft dabbler" for a good part of my life and have a great love of colour that is found in nature and everyday life items. My other great love is travelling and some of my resin jewellery pieces have been influenced by my travels and my passion for Africa. My creations are unique and no two pieces are exactly the same. I lay different colour palettes over my photographic pieces and there is no limit to the stamps, wallpaper and fabric that I can use.
I love the whole process of creating my pieces, from choosing the photo, stamp or wallpaper, pouring the resin and then putting the final finishing touch to each individual and unique piece. I love selling my creations at markets and interacting with my fellow stallholder "creatives" and people coming to the markets.
