Kenya's tradition: Bead work still vital to tribes

WASHINGTON (AP) - Susana Daniel Chemakwany sits quietly under a white tent near the U. S. Capitol, stitching tiny, multicolored beads together into a colorful array of necklaces, wristlets and earrings laid out before her on two tables and behind... A price tag hangs from each item, but there was a time when Chemakwany had little need for price tags on her work. The traditional pastime of jewelry-making has a new economic significance for Chemakwany, an elder of Kenya’s Pokot tribe, who traveled to the National Mall last month to show her wares and share expertise at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. This year’s event ended July 6 and featured the art, dance, music, food and crafts of China and Kenya. The “Kenya: Mambo Poa” exhibit brought the traditions of the East African country together in a cultural celebration. And inside the vast, white tents, master artisans practiced basket weaving, hut-building, hair-braiding and bead-making. Among Kenya’s Pokot, Kikuyu and Maasai tribes, traditional beadwork can provide additional income to support their families. “A long time ago, we used to give them for free” Emmah Irungu, a middle-aged woman of the Kikuyu tribe, said of the items she makes. Many have fallen back on selling traditional bead work. Beads have been integral to Africans for thousands of years. According to the Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies website, the earliest examples of manufactured beads were found in Libya and Sudan and date to 10,000 B. C. Bead work remains part of the cultural tradition in several African... While their ancestors made beads from clay and other local materials, now bead workers must travel hundreds of miles to shops in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital. Many bead artists stock up on materials to last them for months.

An Ode to Necklace Making by Guest Blogger Betty Stephan

Oh, but beaded necklaces. I seldom leave the house with a naked neck, and as far as necklace making goes, for me, beading just doesn't get any better. let me say that I like making wearable beaded necklaces. If you can't wear it, I'm really not interested in making it. I truly appreciate sculptural beadwork, but for now, it's just not what I want to do. I've made all types of beaded jewelry. Necklace making is really my idea of the perfect way to express yourself. A good necklace making project can be varied so easily -- change the size, shape, technique, beads, components, colors or anything else. For me, necklace making projects are perfect ways to express myself through art. I like the challenges involved in necklace making. making sure that the necklace lays correctly on the wearer. If you are making a beaded necklace with the goal of selling it, making sure that it lays correctly on a wide variety of necks is a must. One thing that I have discovered from selling my beaded necklaces at high-end shows is that there are many different shapes and sizes of necks and shoulders out there, all begging for a gorgeous beaded necklace. After coming up with a beaded necklace design, it's important to ensure that the structure of the piece will support all the components and not flop. Above all, the finished beaded necklace needs to be comfortable, in my opinion, to make the wearer feel beautiful and confident. Working on all of these challenges, one by one, are some of the things that I really enjoy about necklace making. Even when my necklace making projects aren't successful at first, through a lot of trial and error that can be frustrating, I'm left with a finished beaded necklace that's a beautiful piece of wearable art, and something that I can be proud of.... I love necklace making. Are you all about necklace making, too....
