Mother and Daughter Pondo Necklace Set
This unique handcrafted necklace set is a beautiful reminder of the love between a mother and her daughter. Unlike the usual mother and daughter sets, this Pondo set also comes with the ethnic history that makes it extra special. It forms part of the Pondo range that is beaded by Sithembene Women’s Development Enterprise. The Pondos, a traditional group in the Eastern Cape, have had a history of adorning their clothing and jewellery based on their most popular plants, trees or animals. Owning products from the beaded range is often associated with high status, as beads were traditionally known to be very expensive and could only be accessed by people who were involved in some form of trading at the coast.
