BEADS WORK (article first published : 2000-12-9)

Beads Work is an exhibition/sale of jewels at the NSA Galleries that incorporate or are derived from beadwork. The aim of this exhibition is to promote an awareness of the potential of beads from a maker's point of view and to increase the awareness of the beauty of beads from a wearer's point of view.

The show is curated by Chris de Beer and Abigail Scorer, both from Technikon Natalís jewellery design department which is instrumental in developing indigenous jewellery in South Africa, particularly in KZN with its wealth of craftspeople. To this end there has been several bead workshops in the department and a new interest in beads resulted from these workshops.

There are several of the pieces on display which are the result of an interaction with the African Art Centre. Some of the themes that will be explored are recycling, Indian decoration, three-dimensional beadwork and popular culture.

The exhibition runs until December 31.
