These earring are inspired by the Ndebele people. The Ndebele tribe is part of the Nguni Ethnic group of South Africa. Ndebele women, in particular, have sustained their identity through their artistic work which adorns their bodies and murals on the outside of their homes which are rich with geometric design. Their designs represent values, emotions and self identity. Their designs and work have won worldwide recognition and can be seen in everything from advertisements to the runway. The bold colors used in these earrings reflect the culture and sophistication of the Ndebele people.
