Zulu Beadwork
by Eleanor Preston-Whyte




Overview -
A brief introduction to the history of beadwork in KwaZulu Natal, followed by a description of contemporary beadwork made both for the market and for personal use. Once the domain of women, distinct regional styles of beadwork have developed, which were passed on from generation to generation. Although these styles continue to be identifiable, particularly in massed dancing at national festivals, Zulu beadwork is increasingly eclectic and much of it is directed at the fast growing external market which now provides beadworkers with both a welcome source of personal income and a continuing stimulus to personal creativity. Zulu Beadwork tells the fascinating and important story of this transformation, and of the major players who were instrumental in bringing it about.
