Inspired by architectural shapes, as well as the natural landscapes of Tanzania, each Nyumbani Design piece is hand-sculpted by skilled African artisans. This bracelet is part of the Nautical Passages collection, inspired by Venice’s canals and storied streets; the black painted old doors, nautical fittings and hues of the weathered buildings are all echoed in this piece. We particularly enjoy the play of contrasting textures; the modern stripe rope with African Blackwood shapes and shiny plated metal bolts.

Inspired by the magical architecture of Ricardo Bofill, this oval-shaped pendant necklace combines the colours of his designs with the bold curves and post-modern lines of his buildings.
