Love at first random glance!

Recently, browsing through the net, I stumbled upon a necklace - a beautiful map of Africa in striking red acrylic with a heart carved out of the map. To say it struck a chord is an understatement! (You see, from a very young age I have had a strong love of Africa, from the rich colours and fabric to the music and people but the love is deeper than that!)  Anyway, I closed the page as it wasn't what I set out to look for and simply forgot about it...

I forgot about it for a day but then it kept coming back into my thoughts, A LOT.  I WANTED IT and as my birthday has just passed I thought it was the perfect reason to buy it! Trying to find it again proved difficult as I couldn't remember what site it was from, the designer or business. I finally found it with the help of Claire from The Girls Mean Business who prompted my memory. THANK YOU!

My most wanted object was created by Stevie K, a wonderful talented designer living in Chicago. She runs her business, tru.che, having quit her day job to pursue her "daydream" of making jewellery. She offers an array of gorgeous designs including a fab range of "country map" necklaces - CLICK HERE .  Everything means different things to different people but MY map of Africa necklace means so much to me, MUCH more than JUST a necklace!

Following my passion for Africa, Con-fused Arts stock a range of Fairtrade jewellery from Africa, to check these out, you can go to either my FaceBook page or website.
