Beadwork Artist

Jabulile is HIV-positive, as are her husband, and two of her four children. She also recently lost her mother and her brother to AIDS.

When she learned that Beaded Hope hired her as an artist, Jabulile felt so inspired that she developed a new beaded holiday ornamental design and presented it to the team. Her innate creativity shined as she persuaded Beaded Hope to begin selling what has become one of Beaded Hope's most popular designs — the Angel Christmas Ornaments.
