South African Inspired #2

The next Crafters Market on the list to tackle before I was swept off to Cape Town for some fine friends and screaming eleven year olds, was The Parkview Market. 
There, the only treasure I found, although there were many, many talented people selling all sorts of things, was this ring. Its made by the Izimbali Group of Women from SOWETO. These women are inspired to empower themselves and started this initiative, helped by the Wire Workers of Johannesburg. You can find these rings in all different shapes, sizes and colours in Big Blue stores.
