Was goin abt the daily grind when I finally got to meet the dude my cousin (Munchkin) had been raving about. He makes jewelry and is currently on the African leg of his backpack trip around the world. His next stop is Malawi (yey, my home country!) He’s going there for the Lake of Stars Music Festival.
Anyway so I got drunk on the beauty of his creations and took pics too. The most beautiful bracelet he had unfortunately I couldn’t afford (below)
He had an explanation for each piece he’d made; name of the stone plus country of origin. And because he travels so much he’s got alot of different things from different countries.
Below are some of the necklaces he was selling (they were made using sharks teeth, Jade stones, Fossils, crystals and seeds)
He makes bracelets too and whipped up little rings for free on the spot for my cousins and I.
Each ring he made is unique. He also had earrings and although small earrings aren’t my thing I couldn’t resist, got myself a blue and green pair. My sister opted for the Spider earrings.
And then while gawking at more of his stuff I came across what is actually a hair bead (you twist it into a lock of hair and let it hang) but my cousin gave me the idea of wearing it as a choker. Noiiice!!
And of course I had to take a photo with him, such a nice dude.
Its so refreshing to meet such people. I wish I had half his courage to go on a backpacking trip around Africa on my own! I wish him well
