SIMPHIWE DUMENGANE,

Adorn - - DESIGN AWARDS -

This de­sign pays an ode to the pa­tri­arch of the fam­ily. The black resin hooks on these earrings rep­re­sent the hands of the pa­tri­arch, plat­inum is the load of du­ties that the head of the fam­ily has and the shape of the earrings is de­vel­oped from the at­tire that Xhosa men wear when they tra­di­tion­ally slaugh­ter a sacri­fi­cial an­i­mal. The smooth metal pol­ish rep­re­sents the beauty of moth­ers who sup­port all good ac­tions, while the rough rep­re­sents the fa­thers of all clans that show the right path as a leader.
