learn more about Beaded Hope artist Nelly

Beadwork Artist

Nelly was referred to Beaded Hope by fellow artist, Jabulile. Her work is nothing short of amazing; every stitch and every bead are perfectly placed.

When hired by Beaded Hope, and given her first payment, Nelly (and beading partner Betty) danced and shouted with excitement. "Now we will have bread on the table for our family," they said in Zulu. But in South Africa, having bread on the table for your family means that you invite ALL of your family to enjoy the bounty that you've received.
