I am in LOVE with Tholo Sibisi’s beadwork and excited to show case her bespoke work on my STYLE ME LIFESTYLE store. These Frida Necklaces are magnificent. ❤️❤️❤️
Here is Tholo’s STORY
Tholo was born in KwaZulu-Natal in October 1976.
Tholo has two children, Samuel and Mandy, who she is supporting completely on her own.
Tholo has been beading for many years, working out of a traditional hut and having to walk to fetch water twice a day, pushing a wheelbarrow with a bucket placed on top of it, to be able to walk home with some water for the family.
It has always been Tholo’s dream to have a “brick and mortar” house in the Valley of 1000 Hills, where she and her family currently live, with electricity, and even better… running water.
Each and every order that is placed helps to aid Tholo in the fulfillment of these dreams.
Tholo has almost been able to have the ceiling boards finished in her new “brick and mortar” house, and as soon as orders allow, there will be the answer to Tholo’s prayers – running water.
Tholo is a quiet, calm, creative, and talented soul, and we are so grateful to have her as part of our team.
